Chloé M. Pelletier is a doctoral candidate at the University of Chicago concentrating on Italian Renaissance art. Originally from Texas, she received her BA in the History of Art with departmental honors from Johns Hopkins University (2013). At the University of Chicago, she wrote her MA thesis on the influence of Early Renaissance painting in the work of 20th-century Chicago artist Roger Brown (2016). She is interested in artists who worked outside of large urban centers and developed independent styles that have been historically labeled ‘provincial.’ Building on these interests, her dissertation examines the elaborate but often overlooked landscape backgrounds of Adriatic Renaissance paintings as a means of investigating the relationship of environment to artistic practice. Beyond the University of Chicago, she has held research positions at the Blanton Museum in Austin, the South Side Community Art Center in Chicago, and the Art Institute of Chicago. She will be spending next year in Urbino, Italy on a Fulbright fellowship.
