Alessandra Comini

By Alessandra Comini, University Distinguished Professor of Art History Emerita, SMU

Dr. Comini discusses in word and imagery how, after a life spent tracking down artists and artworks and conveying the cultural content of artistic form to her beloved SMU students, she continued publishing books, but took to combining fact with fiction in the pseudonymous form of the Megan Crespi Series of Art History Murder Mystery novels. A wine and cheese reception follows in the Gene and Jerry Jones Great Hall.
