Zuzanna Sarnecka is a PhD candidate at Gonville and Caius College, supervised
by Professor Deborah Howard. After completing her first degree in the Department
of History of Art at the University of Cambridge, Zuzanna continued her studies at
the Courtauld Institute of Art where she wrote her dissertation on fifteenth-century Umbrian wooden crucifixes. Subsequently, she went back to her native Poland to organize an international research seminar ‘Artistic Translations Between the Fourteenth and Sixteenth Centuries’ in the History of Art Department at the University of Warsaw.
In 2013 she joined the ERC funded project Domestic Devotions: The Place of Piety
in the Italian Renaissance Home to pursue her interests in the relationship between devotion and craftsmanship in the late fifteenth-century Italy. Her current research focuses on Luca della Robbia’s glazed terracotta sculptures and their role in shaping the character of Italian devotion.
