Cyrielle Secrestat, MA

Cyrielle is a French art historian working between London and Paris. She graduated from the University Paris I Panthéon-Sorbonne and specialises in 19th Century art, particularly French and British art. She studied at the University of York, UK, where she developed her knowledge of the English language and deepened her understanding of British art history. Her various experiences have given her insight into the collections and functioning of archives and libraries in both countries.

During her studies, Cyrielle was able to work with major cultural institutions. She spent several months researching an exhibition at the Rodin Museum in Paris and investigated the works of the Tahitian period of the painter Paul Gauguin in the context of the publishing of the catalogue raisonné by the Wildenstein Plattner Institute.
