Isaac Nugent



Isaac Nugent is an art historian, currently pursuing a PhD in Art History at the University of York. His AHRC funded PhD research project examines how Renaissance urban environments were reshaped through painted architecture between 1530-1630, an under explored aspect of the social and cultural history of this period.
He also works as a gallery educator at the National Gallery, contributing to a programme of tours, talks and workshops for schools, young people and adults.
Isaac has previously written book and exhibition reviews for a range of publications, including Burlington Contemporary, The Burlington Magazine and Dovetail. He holds an MA in Cultural Intellectual and Visual History from The Warburg Institute and an MA in Art and History of Art from the University of Edinburgh.
Before starting his PhD, he worked as a Curatorial Assistant for Modern and Contemporary Projects at the National Gallery. He was a Researcher on the [re]curated Lucian Freud, which reconstructed Lucian Freud’s ground-breaking 1987 ‘The Artist’s Eye’ exhibition through a digital rehang and audio commentary.
