RESEARCH // Dr Emma Merkling


In 2023 and 2024 I am working on two sequential projects on Victorian women painters and nineteenth-century Anglo-Italian artistic networks: one on Annie Swynnerton (1844–1933) and her symbolist networks in Rome; the other on Evelyn De Morgan (1855–1919) and occultic receptions of the Renaissance in her
spiritualist-artistic circles in Florence.

Current projects


  • ‘Finding Annie Swynnerton: British-Italian Symbolist Networks in Rome, 1880–1920’ // Paul Mellon Centre Rome Fellow, The British School at Rome // 2023–24
