Sara Ayres

Sara obtained her doctorate from Birkbeck College, London, in 2012 with a thesis on the way in which Gustav Klimt's paintings were hung in women collectors' private domestic spaces, and then photographed and published within architectural journals (Oxford Art Journal, 2014).

Subsequently she became a Research Associate at Kingston University developing a project on the Weimar wax sculptor Lotte Pritzel, and a Researcher in Residence at the Royal Society of Portrait Painters.


Between 2016 and 2018 she was the Queen Margarethe II Distinguished Postdoctoral Fellow at the National Portrait Gallery in London, working on cultural transfer within the portraits of Danish-British consorts. 

She is currently on a travel grant awarded by the Paul Mellon Centre to study the reception of William Hogarth's prints in Denmark. 

We are therefore extremely thankful to have her as a guide for us at the Wallace Collection this summer!
