Office Hours

John Moore earned his A.B. from Cornell University and an A.M. and Ph.D. from Harvard University.

Professor Moore teaches courses on European urban, architectural and landscape design circa 1250-1750, and seminars and colloquia on aspects of European art of the 18th century.

He has published an article on The Monument, a 202-foot Portland stone column designed and built (1671-77) by Sir Christopher Wren to commemorate the Great Fire of London, and several articles on festivals and related ephemeral designs in 18th-century Rome. Among other themes, his ongoing research projects explore various relationships between the visual arts and the conduct of diplomacy in 18th-century Europe.
