Morna O’Neill

Morna O’Neill (University of Notre Dame, B.A.; Yale, Ph.D.) teaches courses in eighteenth and nineteenth-century European art and the history of photography. Her research addresses the conjunction of art, design, and politics at the end of the nineteenth century. She was curator of the exhibition ‘Art and Labour’s Cause is One:’ Walter Crane and Manchester, 1880-1915 (Whitworth Art Gallery, University of Manchester, August 2008-June 2009) and author of the exhibition catalogue (Whitworth Art Gallery, 2008). Walter Crane is also the subject of her book from Yale University Press, Walter Crane: The Arts and Crafts, Painting, and Politics, 1875-1890. Other research projects include the display of decorative arts at international exhibitions (1889-1911) and the work of the art dealer Hugh Lane (1875-1915). She is the co-editor, with Michael Hatt (University of Warwick), of The Edwardian Sense: Art, Design, and Performance in Britain, 1901-1910 (Yale University Press, 2010).
