Making an Impression: British Women Printmakers in the Long Eighteenth Century.

My AHRC-funded collaborative doctoral studentship will research 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 collection 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.

Supervisors: Dr Kate Retford and Dr Sarah Grant (V&A).
