Personal profile

Personal profile

My doctoral research is looking at the beginning of the Pre-Raphaelite Movement from the perspective of the female collectives who contributed to its artistic, cultural, and literary expansion. My aim is to unveil the diverse artistic networks formed by women who participated in the movement not only as artists, but also as patrons, models, art-critics. I aim to explore the extent to which their participation reveals a collective artistic identity, and how their gendered contributions affected the artistic direction of the Pre-Raphaelite label.
