In the series Medieval Looking, Dr. Annie Labatt focuses on the medieval collections of the McNay, objects which will have been recently reinstalled in the galleries. Drawing upon the holdings of the McNay, Labatt situates medieval works of art - paintings, stained glass, statuary - within a broader art-historical context, one which will consider the medieval world, American collecting practices, and more contemporary art. The series considers how medieval art was read, how it was created, how art mattered in the Middle Ages, and how the Middle Ages matter today.

Labatt is an Assistant Professor at the University of Texas at San Antonio. She has two books forthcoming: Art History 101…without the Exams, a collection of the 20 lectures she gave at the San Antonio Museum of Art, from Trinity University Press; and Laboratory of Images: Emerging Iconographies in 8th- and 9th- Century Rome, a study of the development of Christian imageries.
