Matthew Lincoln, PhD Art History and Digital Research

mlincoln headshot

I am a data research specialist at the Getty Research Institute, where I use computer-aided analysis of cultural datasets to help model long-term trends in iconography, art markets, and the social relations between artists.

I received my PhD in Art History at the University of Maryland, College Park. For my dissertation research, I used computational network analysis to explore the long-term changes in the organization of print designers, engravers, and publishers in the Netherlands between 1500–1700.

On this site you can find my CV, various blog posts on art history, humanities computing, and (occasionally) the Super Mutant Ninja Turtles, as well as articles and conference talks on the ‘Projects’ page.
