David Ehrenpreis, Director
An Associate Professor in the School of Art and Art History, David has been teaching at JMU since 1998. After working at Harvard University Art Museums and the Houghton Library, he received his doctorate from Boston University. He teaches nineteenth-century art and his research focuses on German visual culture and the intersection of art and nationalism. He is Director of the JMU Summer Program in Berlin, and his current book project, "Between Real and Ideal" investigates the role of the artist as a mediator between these two realms in modern European painting.
