Collection Creator Biography:

Martin, John Rupert

John R. Martin was a professor of Art History at Princeton University for 40 years, joining the faculty as a Woodrow Wilson Fellow in 1947. He was eventually made the Marquand Professor of Art and Archaeology in 1970, and chairman of the department from 1973-1979. Specializing in Flemish and Baroque painting, Martin was well-known among the student body as a powerful and engaging lecturer, a reputation that followed him outside of the classroom as he periodically gave lectures at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and other institutions. Martin's scholarly work was held in high esteem, and he won the College Art Association book award in 1974 for his contribution to the Rubens catalogue raisonne, going on to serve as president of the organization from 1984-1986. He was also editor of Art Bulletin from 1971-1974. John R. Martin died in 2000.
