Biography

Barbara Balážová holds a MA in Art History (Faculty of Arts, Comenius University, Bratislava), a MA in Fine Arts (Academy of Fine Arts and Design, Bratislava), and a PhD in Art History (Institute of Art History, Slovak Academy of Sciences, Bratislava). Her research focuses on the period 1550-1800, corresponding to the Late Renaissance and Baroque art and culture in Central Europe, in a global, as well as a local context. She has published a number of scholarly articles and monographs often bearing on the area of the Central Slovakian mining towns as an interpretative space. In her current book, Zlatníctvo stredoslovenských banských miest v ranom novoveku. Majstrovský objekt - životná investícia - elitná reprezentácia (Bratislava, 2016), the formulation of (methodological) questions and the search for answers to them - especially on how to illustrate the history of art in a certain area using the outstanding artisanal craftworks instead of fine arts - takes place within the framework of goldsmithery in the area of Central Slovakian mining towns. Book-length publications: Pictorissa Cremniciensis (Bratislava, 2003); Medzi nebom a zemou. Majstri barokovej fresky na Slovensku (Bratislava, 2009, together with J. Medvecký); Medzi Prahou a Norimbergom, Viedňou a Banskou Štiavnicou. Ulrich Reutter a jeho svet okolo 1600 (Bratislava, 2013).
