Rosie joined the History of Art department at Warwick in 2005, following a teaching fellowship in the History of Art department at the University of York and a postdoctoral research fellowship at the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art. She works on eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century British art, with particular interests in painting, printmaking, exhibition culture and colonial art. Her monograph, Exhibiting Englishness: John Boydell's Shakespeare Gallery and the Formation of a National Aesthetic was published by Yale University Press in 2013, and she is currently working with Compton Verney on an exhibition about Boydell's Gallery, which will open in March 2016. She is a member of the University of Warwick's Eighteenth Century Centre and the department's 'British Art & Architecture since 1750' research cluster.
