Jonathan King

Dr Jonathan King is the Bernays Curatorial Fellow of British Paintings at the National Gallery, where he is also a Researcher and Administrator for the Women and the Arts Forum. He is currently turning his PhD on Vanessa Bell into a book.

Jonathan completed his doctorate at the University of York in 2022 under the supervision of Professor Jason Edwards, exploring the queer-maternal legacy of the Bloomsbury Group artist Vanessa Bell. His interests span British art of the eighteenth through to the twentieth century, with a particular passion for queer and feminist approaches to art history. Between 2022 and 2023, Jonathan was a Researcher at Ben Uri Gallery and Museum, where he researched immigrant artists in Britain since 1900. In early 2020 he was awarded a Research Fellowship at the Yale Center for British Art, and in 2019 he was a Graduate Teaching Assistant in the University of York’s History of Art department.
