The Department is saddened to announce that Professor Emeritus Gene Kleinbauer passed away June 3, 2019, at the age of 82. Professor Kleinbauer, a renowned expert on Early Christian and Byzantine art and architecture and the historiography of art history, taught at Indiana University from 1973 until his retirement as Full Professor in 2006.
