Samuel Shaw is Lecturer in History of Art at the Open University. He specialises in art and exhibition culture in Britain in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, with a particular interest in the 1890s and 1900s. He has written, and curated exhibitions, on a variety of themes, not the least the life and work of the Bradford-born artist William Rothenstein (1872-1945). He helped organise the exhibition From Bradford to Benares: The Art of William Rothenstein (Cartwright Hall Gallery, 2015), and will be publishing a book on Rothenstein and cosmopolitan identity later this year.
