    Biography

    Lea Stephenson focuses on late nineteenth-century American and British art, specifically the Gilded Age and transatlantic artists. She is interested in the representation of materiality in painting and ambient interiors, including the relationship between art and the senses and portraiture. Lea received her Bachelor of Arts in Art History from Temple University in 2015 and Master of Arts from the Williams College Graduate Program in Art History in 2017, where her qualifying paper explored John Singer Sargent’s ownership of Madame X through the lens of haunting and spiritualism. She previously held curatorial internships at the Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Clark Art Institute and the Dallas Museum of Art. In 2018, Lea was the Decorative Arts Research Fellow at the Preservation Society of Newport County, where she researched leaded glass in early McKim, Mead & White interiors and Gilded Age residences. She is currently working on an article about the multi-sensorial rooms in the Newport cottage Kingscote for publication in Nineteenth-Century Art Worldwide for 2020.
