University of Oregon

Jessica M. Johnson is a Ph.D. candidate in Art History at the University of Oregon, specializing in Early Modern European art with an emphasis on eighteenth-century British portraiture. Her research often focuses on portraiture to explore themes such as gender, race, identity, empire, and early globalization. Johnson’s dissertation examines portraits of Blacks who belonged to the upper echelons of British society to consider the intersection of race and class, as well as the formation and complexities of Black identity in Georgian Britain. Her dissertation aims to utilize portraiture to explore how wealthy and influential Blacks perceived and fashioned themselves and, in turn, were perceived within British society during a period in which whites enriched themselves through colonialism and Black enslavement. She received her BA in Art History from Boston University in 2017 and her MA in Art and Museum Studies from Georgetown University in 2018. Johnson has interned at various art institutions, including the National Portrait Gallery, Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art, Christie’s, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. She is a recipient of the University of Oregon’s Promising Scholar Award, the Smithsonian’s Minority Award, and a finalist for the Marshall Scholarship.
