PhD Studentship (AHRC Collaborative Doctoral Partnership Award): “Navigating the Canals: Making and Moving Venetian Renaissance Paintings”.
Offered under an AHRC Collaborative Doctoral Partnership programme with the National Gallery, London, this project intends to study the challenges posed by Venice’s unique physical and geographical environment on the manufacture and delivery of paintings, particularly large scale, within the lagoon city and further afield to local and distant markets. The research will concentrate on Venetian paintings from the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries and aims to recover lost processes, peregrinations and alterations to the paintings’ supports though a combined study of historical records and technical evidence from the paintings themselves, framed by new research questions.
