  • Biography:
  • Andrew Stewart is a graduate of St. Catharine’s College, Cambridge, and of the British Schools of Archaeology at Athens and Rome. He has taught at Cambridge, Otago, Columbia, and from 1979 at Berkeley, where he is Professor of Ancient Mediterranean Art and Archaeology, Nicholas C. Petris Professor of Greek Studies, and Curator of Mediterranean Archaeology at the Phoebe A. Hearst Museum of Anthropology. He has received fellowships and grants from the Guggenheim and Getty Foundations, and from the American Council of Learned Societies, and is a member of the American School of Classical Studies at Athens and the Deutsches Archäologisches Institut. In 2009 he received U.C. Berkeley’s Distinguished Teaching Award. He specialises in Greek art, particularly Greek sculpture; the Greeks in the Levant before and after Alexander; and the Renaissance and later reception of ancient sculpture. He has excavated at Knossos, Long Beach in New Zealand, and from 1986-2006 at Dor in Israel. Now retired from field archaeology and from singing with the Grammy-nominated Pacific Mozart Ensemble, he devotes his limited free time to sailing his sloop Obsession on San Francisco Bay; playing with his twin granddaughters Giselle and Sofia; and ministering to his wife Darlis’s menagerie of cats.
