Angeliki Lymberopoulou joined the Open University in April 2004 from the National Gallery in London, where she worked across the collections as a Dossiers Assistant. She has also taught Modern Greek language and culture at the Foreign & Commonwealth Office, and Byzantine art and architecture at the University of Birmingham.
Her research interests focus on Venetian Crete (1211-1669), particularly the artistic production (i.e. icons and wall paintings), the demand (i.e. market), its social context (i.e. the artists and their hybrid clientele), and the cross-cultural influences between Byzantine East and (mainly Italian) West.
She also examines late – Palaiologan – Byzantine art (1261-1453) produced in the major artistic centres during the last phase of the empire – Constantinople, Thessaloniki and Mystras.
