Louise Boursier

After a BA in Art History and Archaeology at the University Panthéon-Sorbonne in Paris, I decided to move abroad and do my masters at the University of Warwick with the Centre for the Study of the Renaissance in September 2020. I chose the MA Culture of the European Renaissance to expend my knowledge on the early modern period from a purely Art historical method to an interdisciplinary approach. Despite the impact the pandemic had on our lives, I was able to enjoy all of what the CSR had to offer (minus the Venice term unfortunately). I enjoyed the company of the vibrant postgraduate community of the CSR. For my dissertation, I was lucky to have Dr Giorgio Tagliaferro as my supervisor while I was working on Luca Signorelli’s production in Cortona and his eschatological approach to the representation of the Virgin Mary by the inclusion of Saint Michael in his compositions.

After this MA at the CSR, I am continuing my postgraduate studies with the taught MA Art Gallery and Museum Studies at the university of Manchester with as goal to work as a museum professional and a curator, with a specialisation in early modern art.
