Mary B. Shepard is Professor Emerita at the University of Arkansas-Fort Smith, where she initiated a program in the History of Art, including a minor in Art History adopted in 2015. She is a former President of the International Center of Medieval Art and head of Education at The Cloisters–the branch museum of The Metropolitan Museum of Art dedicated to the art and architecture of medieval Europe. Her research interests include French and English medieval stained glass as well as the reuse of medieval art in later contexts. Recent publications and lectures focus on the stained glass of the parish church of St. Michael-le-Belfrey, York—the last program of stained glass created in York before Henry VIII broke with Rome. The Belfrey stained glass is the subject of a Corpus Vitrearum volume, currently in progress.
