Research Interests

My research centres around early modern Spain with a particular focus on religious art and practice in 17th-century Seville.

Other research interests include, the mythological works on Diego Velázquez as they relate to ingenuity, imitation and invention; the influence of Titian in 17th-century Spanish art; and the reception and collecting of Bartolomé Esteban Murillo in 18th- and 19th-century Britain and Ireland.
