Lavin is one of America’s most distinguished art historians.

His numerous books on Roman and Florentine sculpture and architecture include Bernini and the Crossing of St. Peter’s (1968); Bernini and the Unity of the Visual Arts (1980); Past-Present: Essays on Historicism in Art from Donatello to Picasso (1993); Santa Maria del Fiore: The Cathedral of Florence and the Pregnant Virgin (1999); and Caravaggio and La Tour: The Occult Light of God (2000).

Lavin has recently delivered the A.W. Mellon Lectures at the National Gallery of Art. He is the foremost living authority on the works of Gian Lorenzo Bernini, and has published important articles on St. Peter’s, Caravaggio, Michelangelo, Modernism, and Post-Modernism.
