My research in recent years has focused on art produced in Paris in the second half of the 19th through early 20th century. I have published articles on Degas and Manet, and on such topics as images of smoking. As one example, an article, "Metaphorical Representations of the Female Body in Edgar Degas's "A Cotton Office in New Orleans" was published in Reading the Social Body, University of Iowa Press, 1993. Recently I have begun research on film topics, as in the films of Leni Riefenstahl and Lina Wertmuller. I am completing an article on Picasso's "Celestina."
