Joni Kinsey

University of Iowa Art Historian

Joni L. Kinsey received her Ph.D. from Washington University in St. Louis in 1989. She teaches a variety of courses that range from surveys of visual culture in the United States to topical subjects such as landscape painting and print culture. She focuses her research on nineteenth-century landscape painting and western art, but she also has written on other subjects such as nineteenth century popular prints, Grant Wood, and women artists. In spring 2014, Professor Kinsey was a Fulbright Fellow in the United Kingdom in 2014, working on a new project, Thomas Moran’s Britain: Transatlantic Visions of “The American Turner.”
