Izabella Gill-Brown is a first-year PhD candidate supervised by Professor Jason Edwards at the University of York. Her research examines the relationships and roles of Anglo-Indian sculptural portraits produced in the nineteenth-century for the British Royal Family, based on the exploration of specific case studies. Her wider interdisciplinary interests include material cultures, feminist and postcolonial criticisms of the long nineteenth-century, and the conservation of fine art. Izabella received her MA in Conservation of Fine Art at Northumbria University at Newcastle, specialising in Easel painting and frame conservation with a focus on the treatment of monochromatic artworks. Prior to this, she gained her BA in History of Art at the University of York.
