Greg Sullivan to Teach MA Module Autumn 2018

We are delighted to announce that art historian and curator Dr Greg Sullivan will be joining us as a Visiting Tutor in the Autumn term of 2018-19 to teach a module on Sir Francis Chantrey (1781-1841): Art, Man, and the Earth in Early-Nineteenth Century Britain for our MA in History of Art (British Art).

Dr Sullivan has worked as a curator at Tate Britain and the Ashmolean Museum, and has held a research fellowship at the Victoria and Albert Museum. As a curator he was responsible for the permanent display of Francis Chantrey’s plaster models at the Ashmolean Museum (2009); and at Tate Britain, he was the organising curator for the 2015 exhibition Sculpture Victorious (co-curated by Professor Jason Edwards, University of York), and lead curator for Fighting History: 250 Years of British History Painting.

As well as many articles, Dr Sullivan’s books include: Sir Francis Chantrey and the Ashmolean Museum (Ashmolean Publications, 2015); Fighting History: 250 Years of British History Painting (Tate Publications 2015); and A Biographical Dictionary of Sculptors in Britain 1660-1851, with Ingrid Roscoe and Emma Hardy (Yale 2009).

For further details, read about the University of York’s MA pathway in British Art; find out more about the Sir Francis Chantry Module; and see Dr Sullivan’s staff profile.
