    Esther Gabel is a specialist in the Art and Architecture of Venice, with particular emphasis on the Eighteenth Century.

    After receiving her doctorate from the University of Cambridge, Gabel has published on Giambattista Tiepolo, marriage, and female patronage in Venice. Her current book project, Venice in the Age of Tiepolo, addresses social upheaval in early modern Venice and a new genre of painting that emerged from it. At Washington University since 2015, Dr. Gabel teaches courses in Renaissance Architecture, Baroque Painting, and Eighteenth-Century Europe.
