Eleanore Neumann

Eleanore Neumann is a doctoral candidate in the McIntire Department of Art where she is writing the dissertation The Global Landscapes of Maria Graham (1785-1842). She studies the intersection of landscape, gender, and empire in eighteenth- and nineteenth-century British art and visual culture with a particular focus on drawings, prints, and their intermediality. Her interests extend to the legacy of empire, including contemporary Indigenous art from Australia. After receiving a B.A. in art history and Hispanic studies from Vassar College, she pursued an M.A. in art history from the Courtauld Institute of Art. Neumann has curated exhibitions at the Philadelphia Museum of Art and, most recently, the Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection of the University of Virginia.
