Ian Lorne Campbell is a Scottish art historian born in Stirling in 1946. He is the author of a number of books on 14th- and 15th-century art, and a leading expert on Early Netherlandish painting, and his contributions to research and knowledge on the period are on a par with the works of Max Jakob Friedländer and Erwin Panofsky. His 1998 catalogue The Fifteenth Century Netherlandish Paintings has been described as "standard-setting".[1] He has published articles with the journals The Burlington Magazine and The Connoisseur, amongst others.

Campbell has been a curator at the National Gallery, London since 1996. He received his undergraduate degree from the Edinburgh University and PH.D. from University of London in 1973. Between 1970 and 1971 he taught at Manchester University and later at Cambridge University. From 1974 on, he lectured on the Northern Renaissance at The Courtauld Institute of Art, University of London.[2]

Campbell lives in London[3] and in July 2014 will publish his book, The Sixteenth Century Netherlandish Paintings with French Paintings before 1600, a catalogue which analyses 85 works in the National Gallery collection.
