Like a surprising number of art historians, I was a pre-med student early in my college career, and medicine has remained a constant source of inspiration and intellectual curiosity.  More recently, the history of physics has aided in building a framework for the understudied, later portraits of John Singer Sargent.  Concerns with energy science, an obsession with materiality, and social precarity are threaded through the book.  A collection of essays in progress on The Medical Portrait considers the hybrid forms of Anglo-American photographic and cinematic representation in which the expectations of medical objectivity vied with the aesthetic conventions of portraiture.
