Lucetta Johnson holds a PhD in nineteenth-century British art from the Courtauld Institute. Her research focuses on representations of the body, medical history, spatial theory, and the Victorian obsession with material culture.
She has worked in the education department at Sir John Soane’s Museum and on exhibitions at Tate Britain and the Courtauld Gallery.
From 2011, she lectured at the Courtauld Institute on nineteenth-century art, where she developed and taught a new MA course on the interrelationship between bodily and domestic interiors. Lucetta’s first novel – 1851 – draws on her keen interest in Victorian London.
Lucetta lives in London with her husband, new baby and dog.
