Lucy Shaw

Lucy Shaw is an AHRC-funded PhD student of Art History at the University of Birmingham. Her thesis explores British Neo-Romantic art, design and illustration from 1940 until the end of the 1950s, with a focus on travel and sexuality in the work of John Minton, Keith Vaughan, Michael Ayrton, John Craxton, Robert Colquhoun and Robert MacBryde. Her research interests are focused on 19th and 20th century British art and particularly the relationship between word and image.

Previously she was an Assistant Curator at the Victoria and Albert Museum working with the National Art Library collections and has also held positions at Artangel, the National Portrait Gallery and the Peggy Guggenheim Collection. She has an MA in Art History and Museum Curating from the University of Sussex and a BA in English Literature and Art History from the University of Leeds.
