Dr John Robert Guy (1949-2020)

Robert Guy was one of the most outstanding classical scholars of his generation. Born in Canada in 1949 he studied at Queens College, Ontario before arriving in Oxford in 1975 where he remained until 1984. He received his doctorate for his thesis on "The Early Classical Followers of Douris" having studied under Professor Martin Robertson, the former pupil and presumed heir to the great Oxford vase scholar J.D. Beazley. From here he went to The Art Museum, Princeton as Associate Curator of Ancient Art, a position he held until 1991. At Princeton Robert was able to make important acquisitions as well as continuing with his research, lecturing and redisplaying areas of the collection. From 1992, he held the Humfry Payne Senior Research Fellow in Classical Archaeology at Corpus Christi College, Oxford, leaving in 1999 to work as an independent scholar and adviser before joining the Cahn Gallery in Basel in 2009.

Robert Guy was essentially a vase scholar and although he would deny it, some called him the "new Beazley" but he also had a formidable knowledge and understanding on all areas of the ancient world as illustrated by the impressive list of acquisitions and loans he made for Princeton and the advice and support he gave to many colleagues and friends worldwide.
