Anna McGee

PhD student

Anna is an AHRC-funded PhD student, working on a Collaborative Doctoral Project jointly supervised by Fabrizio Nevola at the University of Exeter and Caroline Campbell at the National Gallery, London. Her research focuses on artworks made for private palaces in 15th-century Florence. In particular, she is interested in the original decoration of liminal and transitional spaces in the domestic interior, such as thresholds, staircases and passageways. By using digital modelling software, she hopes to reconstruct the 15th-century context and experience of these artworks, both as a scholarly tool and as a means of engaging the museum public.
