Lucy Bamford

Lucy Bamford is the Senior Curator of Art for Derby Museums Trust, where she manages a large and broad-ranging collection of art dating from the 17th century to the present day. However, Lucy’s main interest is the life and work of the 18th century artist Joseph Wright of Derby, of which Derby Museums holds the largest and most comprehensive collection in the world. Lucy’s post at Derby Museums represents her first curatorial role, which she began in 2008 following her graduation from the Courtauld Institute of Art in 2007. She is a long-term member of BAN and has been a contributor to the BAN Steering Committee since 2019.
