Posted in graduate students by Editor on May 5, 2017

From Birkbeck College:

PhD Studentship | Making an Impression: British Women Printmakers in the Eighteenth Century
V&A / Birkbeck College, University of London, starting October 2017

Applications due by 23 May 2017

Angelica Kauffman, Juno, etching, London, 1770 (London: V&A, E.350-1890).

Applications are invited for an AHRC-funded PhD studentship researching the role, status and output of amateur and professional women printmakers in Britain during the long eighteenth century, drawing on the Victoria & Albert Museum’s strong collections of work by women printmakers of this period. The project will reconstruct and investigate the work of a number of women artists who have long been overlooked, thereby making a significant contribution to the history of art, design and the print.

This project will be supervised by Dr Kate Retford, Senior Lecturer in History of Art (Birkbeck College, University of London), who specialises in eighteenth-century British art, particularly gender and portraiture, and Dr Sarah Grant, Curator of Prints at the V&A, whose research interests encompass eighteenth-century prints, women artists, and female patronage.
Deadline: 5pm, Tuesday, 23 May 2017
