Diana Taylor

Abbey Scholar 2010/11

Diana Taylor is constantly looking back to ancient and modern histories in art, architecture and culture and plans to use her time in Rome to explore the notion of an all-enveloping experience in painting through the research of various historical paintings and architecture with special focus on Roman ruins, Raphael's Vatican room 'Fire in the Borgo', Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel and many architectural sites. She is looking forward to benefiting from the exchange of ideas between the community of artists, writers and archaeologists at the British School at Rome.
