Liz Kwast

Liz Kwast is a MRes/PhD student at Birmingham University with a particular interest in British art from the 1920s and 1930s. The topic of her MA in Art History thesis was on scholarly interpretations of Edward Burra’s urban scenes painted between 1930 and 1935. Her current MRes/PhD research focuses on women artists active in the Seven & Five Society in the 1920s and 1930s. Of particular interest is how so many of these women are now labelled as ‘little known’ in spite of the fact that they had successful careers in their lifetime. The research will focus on how archival and curatorial systems contribute to the invisibility of these women artists.
