Research Area: From Cubism to Non-Objective Art -- Sonia and Robert Delaunay and the Russian Avant-Garde

Supervisor: Dr Rosalind Blakesley


Cinthia Willaman specialises in early twentieth-century European and Russian modernism, especially the intellectual exchanges between European and Russian artists before the First World War. Her primary area of research concentrates on how Robert and Sonia Delaunay contributed to the dissemination of non-objective painting, with a specific focus on their connections to Russian artists.

In addition to her PhD, Cinthia works as a consultant and curator of modern and contemporary art and photography. She has worked in galleries in San Francisco, London and Paris.

Cinthia's PhD (2018) was supervised by Dr. Rosalind P. Blakesley, and prior to Cambridge, she studied under Professor John Milner at the Courtauld Institute of Arts and received an MA with distinction on her thesis on Sonia and Robert Delaunay.
