Judith Stapleton studies British art in the 19th and 20th centuries. Her research focuses on transitional artistic exchange, the histories of modernism, and the art of the First World War. She is particularly interested in how tropes of modernism, realism, and abstraction interweave in British art through the Victorian, Edwardian, and Interwar periods.
Judith holds a bachelor’s degree from Franklin & Marshall College, where she received the Williamson Medal, the highest student award, for scholarship and leadership. In 2015, she was awarded a Fulbright Fellowship for the pursuit of her M.A. degree at the University of Bristol. Judith has curated two exhibitions: The Lay of the Land: Visions of America 1850-2013 at the Phillips Museum of Art in Lancaster, PA (2013) and Drawn-In (2015), which she co-curated at the Royal West of England Academy in the United Kingdom.
