She received her undergraduate degree from Radcliffe College in 1972 with a major in history and literature of the Renaissance and Reformation, followed by a two-year period of study at the Warburg Institute in London, where she received an MPhil in combined historical studies (the Renaissance) in 1974. Her MA and PhD in art history are both from Harvard University (1975 and 1980), with a special focus on Renaissance and Baroque architecture.
