Mary Frances will begin her PhD coursework specializing in contemporary art in the fall of 2018. In addition to art since 1960, her interests include artists of sixteenth-century Italy, the seventeenth-century Dutch Republic, and nineteenth-century France. Across epochs, her research often examines changing conceptions of feminine identities; imagery of the aging body; anthropomorphic treatment of objects; and presentation of the body’s surface as a material.
