Biographical Information

Egon Verheyen was born in Germany in 1936. In 1962 he was awarded a degree in Art History with a minor in Classical Archaeology and Historical Studies from the University of W├╝rzburg. He immigrated to the United States of America in 1966. He worked at many universities including the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, Wesleyan University, University of Michigan, Johns Hopkins University, University of Pennsylvania and the University of Virginia until 1987 when he came to work at George Mason University. From 1987 until his retirement in 2008, he was a Clarence J. Robinson Professor of Humanities at George Mason University.

Besides being a professor, he was also an accomplished writer. His first book was Die Minoritenkirche zu Duisburg, Neue Untersuchungen zu ihrer Geschichte (1959). He then went on to write The Paintings in the Studiolo of Isabella d'Este at Mantua (1971) and The Palazzo del Te in Mantua Images of Love and Politics (1977). He also wrote articles and book reviews including a few articles about early architecture in Washington D.C.
