Max Grossman
Associate Professor, Art

Dr. Grossman's research area is medieval and Renaissance Italian architecture and urbanism. At present he is focusing on the political iconography of the Sienese commune, as manifest in painting, sculpture, architecture, coinage, seals and manuscripts. In addition, he is studying the development of the Italian civic palace, from its origins in the twelfth century through its final transformations in the quattrocento, with the aim of challenging and revising traditional paradigms while forming a new critical apparatus for interpreting the architecture and urbanism of medieval and Renaissance city-states.

Off campus, Dr. Grossman serves on the Executive Board of the Texas Trost Society, where he presides over the Architectural Preservation Committee, whose mission is to formulate and implement strategies for protecting the architectural heritage of El Paso while promoting the economic development of the designated historic districts of both the city and county. He also serves as Coordinator of the El Paso History Alliance and on the advisory board of Humanities West in San Francisco.
