​Doctoral student Alba Campo Rosillo has published an essay for the Winterthur Program in American Material Culture’s blog, Material Matters. Entitled “Worldviews and Friendships in Portrait Painting,” she offers a peek into the intimate world of kinship within eighteenth-century British courts. Connecting aristocratic Britain with the democratic United States, the text ends by analyzing the uses of portraiture by George Washington. In this way, Campo Rosillo reveals the ruptures as well as the continuities of the use of royal portraiture by the hand of a plebeian creole in the independent US.
