Geoff Lehman received his B.A. in humanities from Yale University, where he studied literature, philosophy, and art history in an interdisciplinary context. He received his PhD in art history from Columbia University, with a dissertation on the relationship between perspective and Renaissance landscape painting. Before coming to Bard College Berlin, Geoff taught art history for several years in Columbia University’s core curriculum, as well as in its summer program. His research interests include the theory and history of perspective, art and viewer response, the relationship between painting and music in the Renaissance, and the origins and development of landscape painting in Europe. Geoff is currently working with Bard College Berlin colleague Michael Weinman, on a study of the Parthenon in relation to ancient Greek music theory and mathematics. Geoff joined the faculty at Bard College Berlin as a fellow in 2006, and became a member of the permanent faculty in 2008.
