The Art Department would like to remember Charles Davis (PhD 1973), who died in Munich on October 26th, 2015. From his obituary in the Burlington Magazine: “He was born in Burlington, North Carolina, on 19th October 1939 and in 1973 he received his Ph.D. from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill; his dissertation was entitled ‘Studies in the Sculpture of Bartolomeo Ammannati’. He began his research in Florence in 1968, and from 1969 to 1971, with a Fellowship from the Samuel H. Kress Foundation, continued his studies on Italian sculpture at the Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florenz. This focus, and his research in Florence during these years, became the foundation upon which his later studies dedicated to Italian cinquecento sculpture, painting and architecture rest.” You can read more here.
