Andrew StangelArt Historian

Few speakers on art and history have as varied and impressive a resumé as Dr. Andrew’ Laurie Stangel. His knowledge, experience, and insight have thrilled audiences from coast to coast!

Dr. Stangel graduated Phi Beta Kappa from UCLA and completed his graduate study in History and Civilization at the Universities of Wisconsin and California. A recipient of numerous academic honors and distinguished teaching awards, he has lectured at colleges and universities, and at museums and galleries, in the United States and Europe. Dr. Stangel also created and directed the Art History Tours program for the United States Armed Forces in Europe.

While living abroad, Dr. Stangel photographed the collections of every major art museum and gallery in Europe, public and private, as well as at historical sites and archaeological zones throughout Europe and the Near East. He has also photographed the great collections on exhibition in the United States, and has a comprehensive resource collection of more than 100,000 art-historical slides which he uses to illustrate his lectures. “If it happened, or was created, sometime between Adam and Neil Armstrong,” Stangel remarks, “I want to be able to illustrate it!”

Dr. Stangel’s illustrated lectures include all periods of art and history from ancient times to the present day. Popular topics include:

Treasures of Europe: An Armchair Travelogue:  In this lecture, Dr. Stangel will present a personally narrated guided tour through one or more of the great cities, regions, or countries of Europe.

Great Art Museums of Europe and the United States:  In this lecture, Dr. Stangel will present a narrated guided tour through one or more of the world’s greatest collections of art, such as The Louvre in Paris, The Vatican Museums in Rome, The National Galley and The British Museum in London, The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, and The National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC.

Possessing the Past  The proprietorship of cultural patrimonies – the Who owns what? and how? and why? of art treasures, archaeological materials, and historical relics – is the hottest topic of discussion among museum professionals as well as in boardrooms of trustees charged with the responsibilities of conservatorship.  Actually, the matter of ownership vis-à-vis cultural properties goes far beyond the walls of those institutions whose collections are the subject of that discussion.  It has become a matter of cultural diplomacy at the highest level – indeed is an aspect of international relations.  And it is a matter of great concern for the survival of museums as we have come to know them and to benefit from them.

Additional topics include Southern France in the Art of Vincent van Gogh, as well as The Christmas Story in Art and The Easter Story in Art, two beautiful and seasonal lectures illustrating the Bible with some of the world’s greatest works of art, including masterpieces by Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Rembrandt, and many other artists from the Renaissance to the present day.
