Staff Profile:Dr Simon Lee

Name::

Simon_Lee_2014

Position / Job Title:
Associate Professor in the History of Art
Responsibilities:
Senior Tutor in History, Senior Tutor for the School of Humanities
Areas of Interest:

My research covers aspects of French and Spanish art in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries with particular emphasis on Jacques-Louis David, Eugène Delacroix and Francisco Goya. I am also particularly interested in the relationship between the visual arts and the social and political upheavals of the Revolutionary and Napoleonic periods, including the imagery and ideology of territorial conquest and colonization.

I welcome enquiries from prospective postgraduate students in any of the above areas of interest, as well as 18th and 18th century sculpture. I have supervised postgraduate research theses on Goya and on English Baroque and Gothic Revival architecture as well as acting as external examiner for doctoral theses on French 18th and 19th century painting and criticism

Publications:

I have published widely on Jacques-Louis David, including a monograph in 1999 (Phaidon Art & Ideas) and 'A newly discovered portrait of Napoleon by Jacques-Louis David' (Burlington Magazine, October 2013). My monograph on Delacroix will appear in the Phaidon Art & Ideas series in the Spring of 2015. My contribution to Melvyn Bragg's 'In Our Time' Radio 4 programme on Delacroix's Liberty Leading the People is available at http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b015zrrj

I have also written articles on Jean-Germain Drouais, Goya, and José Luzán and was consultant for television programmes on David, Goya and Delacroix by Tim Marlow in the second series of Great Artists for Channel 5.
