About the author


This page is edited by Zsombor Jékely, an art historian from Budapest, Hungary. I work at the Museum of Applied Arts in Budapest. Recently I have been one of the curators of a major exhibition dedicated to King and Emperor Sigismund.

I received my PhD from Yale University, where I studied at the History of Art Department, focusing on medieval art. My dissertation is titled Art and Patronage in Medieval Hungary - The Frescoes of the Augustinian Church at Siklós (advisor: Walter Cahn). My earlier diplomas are from the Central European University (MA in Medieval Studies) and from Eötvös Loránd University (MA in Art History)



You can find me on LinkedIn and on Academia.edu, where several of my papers are also available.
