American art historian and professor who specializes in Italian Baroque painting. Spear was educated in art history at the University of Chicago (B.A., 1961) and Princeton University (Ph.D., 1965). His research and publications have focused on seventeenth-century European art, ranging from a two-volume catalogue raisonné on Domenichino (1581–1641) to studies based on iconographic, psychoanalytic, feminist, and economic methodologies. He taught at Oberlin College from 1965 until 2000, where he also directed the Allen Memorial Art Museum (1972–1983).

He has written for the Times Literary Supplement, The Artnewspaper, The Washington Post, and The International Herald Tribune. He was Editor-in-Chief of The Art Bulletin from 1985 to 1988.
