The Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery has awarded Alba Campo Rosillo a predoctoral residential fellowship. During her residency, September 2019 to August 2020, Campo Rosillo will develop her dissertation project "Artistry and Industry: The Portraiture of George Peter Alexander Healy, 1830-1871." In her study, she focuses on the portrait production of American artist George Peter Alexander Healy (1913-1894) through the lens of industry, which functioned in Healy’s career as a source of patronage as well as inspiration, sparking the artist to redefine a genre and rethink marketability. In three chapters, Campo Rosillo will analyze Healy's format of the industrialist portrait; his practice of painting portraits on speculation, copying portrait collections in bulk and commercializing prints after these portraits; his use of new materials; and his participation in industrial fairs to understand how he engaged with industrial culture.
