Creighton Gilbert – A non-selective chronological bibliography

"A non-selective bibliography is the only useful kind!" — Creighton Gilbert

Prof. Gilbert (B.A., New York University, Institute of Fine Arts, 1942; Ph.D., New York University, Institute of Fine Arts, 1955) taught at Emory University, the University of Louisville, and Indiana University, Brandeis University, CUNY, Cornell, and Yale. He was a visiting professor at UC Berkeley (1959), the University of Leiden (1974-75), Williams College (1976), and Hebrew University (1985). He was a Fulbright Lecturer at the University of Rome (1951-52), a Kress Fellow at the Harvard Center for Italian Renaissance Studies in Florence (1967-68), and a Fellow of the Netherlands Institute for Advanced Study (1972-73). He received the College Art Association's Mather Award in 1964, and he was a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.

Note: I worked on this bibliography with Prof. Gilbert; the annotations, groupings, and clarifications it contains are his. For my personal recollection of him, see this post.

  1. What a great resource! Thanks for sharing. Next week, by coincidence, I've assigned my students to read Gilbert's article, "What Did the Renaissance Patron Buy?" I'm pleased that I can introduce my students to Gilbert's work during this time in which his life is being honored.

  2. Very nice, Monica. I think folks have also gotten a lot of pedagogical mileage out of “When did a Man in the Renaissance Grow Old?” In fact, those questions seem connected!
