Adjunct Associate Professor
Benjamin Binstock specializes in Northern Baroque and Renaissance Art, Art Historiography, and Theory. He received his Ph.D. from Columbia University and has taught there, at New York University, and CUNY. His recent book Vermeer's Family Secrets: Genius, Discovery, and the Unknown Apprentice (Routledge: 2009) offers a revisionist account of Vermeer's art and life, including his controversial claim that Vermeer's eldest daughter painted several works attributed to her father. He is presently working on a radical revision of Rembrandt's oeuvre in relation to his students. His work was the subject of a day-long conference at New York University in May of 2013.
