Thesis Title: Victoria, Albert and Sculpture

I completed my Bachelors degree in History at Trinity College Dublin (2005-2009), following which I completed an M.Phil degree in Irish Art History at the Irish Art Research Centre, Trinity College Dublin (2009-2010), where I researched the connections between Prince Albert and the movement to establish the National Gallery of Ireland, 1854-64. I am interested in the nineteenth-century art world and art institutions in Britain and Ireland, particularly in issues surrounding the audiences for art and the means by which it was disseminated in the Victorian period. In my PhD thesis I examined Queen Victoria's and Prince Albert’s sculpture collection; the ways in which they displayed, disseminated and promoted sculpture; and the audiences and modes of display of sculptural representations of the royal family during Victoria’s reign.
