Dr Sara Ayres was awarded her doctorate for her thesis on Gustav Klimt from Birkbeck College in 2011. During 2012-13 she acted as a postdoctoral research assistant on a project at Kingston University examining the work of prolific portrait sculptor Ivor Roberts-Jones, which led to the publication of her chapter, ‘Ivor Roberts-Jones’ Standing Bronze Portraits of Winston Churchill in Oslo, New Orleans and Prague’ in Jonathan Black’s, Abstraction and Reality: the Sculpture of Ivor Roberts-Jones (2013). In 2013 Sara was Researcher in Residence at the Royal Society of Portrait Painters, funded by Creativeworks London, where she developed a project to scope future markets for commissioned, painted portraits. Her article ‘Staging the Female ‘Look’: A Viennese Context of Display for Klimt’sDanaë‘ will be published in the Oxford ArtJournal later this year.
