Thalia Allington-Wood is an art historian specialising in early modern Italian art with a focus on sculpture. She read English Literature at the University of Manchester and completed her MA and PhD (2019) in Art History at University College London, with a thesis on the monstrous statues of the Sacro Bosco of Bomarzo. She is particularly interested in the materiality and wider viewing environments of art objects in relation to their making and reception, canon formation, periodization and what has been termed the ‘visual historiography’ of material culture, as well as issues relating to the environment and feminism. Her MA and doctoral studies were funded by full studentships from the Arts and Humanities Research Council. She was an Ahmanson Research Fellow at UCLA's Centre for Medieval and Renaissance Studies in 2016 and Junior Fellow at Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and Collection of Harvard University in 2018. Her research has also been supported to date by awards from the London Arts and Humanities Partnership, UCL, the Society of Architectural Historians and the Sixteenth Century Society. Previously Thalia has worked in museum education, curatorial and research, with positions held at London's Victoria and Albert Museum and The Design Museum. She also teaches at Sotheby’s Institute of Art and University College London, and is currently curating an exhibition with Judith Winter on the artist Edward Allington at the Henry Moore Institute in Leeds.
