The second research scholarship awarded to a student of the École du Louvre

17/11/2020

Cerise Thelwall Doussot is the recipient of the second scholarship for research in art history offered to a PhD student of the École du Louvre by the Francis Bacon MB Art Foundation.

She began her doctoral dissertation in 2020. Her thesis, entitled ‘Francis Bacon et les collections parisiennes’, analyses the impact of works seen by Bacon in Parisian art collections, principally museums, on his own paintings. Starting with a comprehensive exploration of the ties between the artist and the city of Paris, this research aims to bring together the traces, testimonies and correspondence concerning not only Bacon’s Parisian sojourns, but also his museum visits and the way in which he apprehended and absorbed the art of the past in this context.
