Judith Stapleton studies art produced between 1850 and 1930 in and around the British Isles. Her thesis, entitled William Orpen: Modernist, investigates the status of realism and modernism at the turn of the century, transnational networks of artists and artistic exchange, and the art of the First World War. Judith was a Fulbright Fellow from 2015 to 2016 and is conducting her doctoral research at Yale University. She is the co-curator of Unto this Last: Two Hundred Years of John Ruskin, on display at the Yale Center for British Art from September 5 to December 8, 2019.
