Felicity Myrone is an art historian and curator with a particular interest in 17th-19th-century works on paper, their collecting histories, and the historical relationships between the image collections at the British Library and British Museum.
She worked as a Curatorial Assistant at the British Museum’s Department of Prints and Drawings before joining the British Library as Curator of Topography in 2006. In 2015 she became Lead Curator, Western Prints and Drawings, with sole responsibility for prints and drawings in the printed books, maps and manuscripts collections.
She is leading an externally funded team cataloguing and digitizing George III’s maps and views, the King’s Topographical Collection, and managing a related research project, Transforming Topography. One outcome of the latter is the British Library webspace, Picturing Places.
This project is cataloguing and digitising George III’s collection of around 30–40,000 maps and views.
