B.A., Art History with a minor in Italian, University of California, Los Angeles, 2009
As a Presidential Fellow at the University of Virginia, Elizabeth received an M.A. in Art and Architectural History last spring. Her research focuses on the sixteenth-century portrait of the Southern Renaissance, a genre that inspired her exploration of the visionary portraiture of Giovanni Battista Moroni. Now, she looks forward to expanding her treatment of the devotional portrait as she pursues a Ph.D. under the continued guidance of Francesca Fiorani. Elizabeth has also attended the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art, in addition to interning at the Peggy Guggenheim Collection in Venice, the Victoria & Albert Museum and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Last summer, she received a Kress Foundation Fellowship to attend Middlebury's German School, while most recently the generosity of Floyd L. Moreland Scholarship made it possible to attend the City University of New York Latin Institute. On a lighter note, she enjoys good books, old Hollywood films, and learning to cook.
