Kathryn Desplanque

Art, Art History, and Visual Studies

Kathryn is completing a dissertation entitled “Art, Commerce, and Caricature: Satirical Images of Artistic Life in Paris, 1750-1850.” Her research explores a collection of 500 printed satirical images, their surrounding image series, and 50 pieces of short fiction, popular theater, and panoramic literature on the same subject. Kathryn uses qualitative data analysis software, in particular nVivo, to database and analyze the objects she studies, and will be exploring strategies for visualizing this data in the PhD Lab. Her research on graphic satire and Paris’ art world has appeared in Eighteenth-Century Studies, RACAR, and The Power of Satire.
