All Artists & Writers

Katie Jane Tyreman Herrington holds a PhD in History of Art from the University of York. Her AHRC-funded doctoral thesis, Between Women: Visualizing Victorian Women Artists’ Identities through Art Movements, Media and Scale, c.1848–1898, focused on artworks produced by British women artists who worked between disciplines and media, and she explored their formation of specific identities through their art. From February to May 2013 she undertook an AHRC-funded postdoctoral Cultural Engagement Fellowship entitled, Three Graces: Victorian women, visual art and exchange. The project, which was a collaborative one between the Humanities Research Centre and Department of History of Art at the University of York and the Victoria and Albert Museum, involved a number of cultural engagement events and resulted in an online resource available on the History of Art Department’s Research Portal. She is interested in nineteenth-century British and European art and she is particularly concerned with the material qualities of Victorian paintings. Her research focuses on artworks produced by a number of women artists who worked beyond predetermined categories and between disciplines and media and explores their formation of specific artistic identities through their art.
