Louise Campbell

Louise Campbell is Professor Emerita of History of Art at the University of Warwick.

Louise spent two years at art college before training as an art historian at Sussex University and the Courtauld Institute. She taught in Warwick’s Art History department for many years before retiring in 2014.

She has published widely on modern architecture, on the architecture of modern Coventry, (especially the new cathedral designed by Basil Spence), and on public art in the post-war period. 

Her interest in how artists shape and are in turn shaped by their surroundings is explored in her book Studio lives: architect, art and artist in twentieth-century Britain (Lund Humphries, 2019)

Louise was a trustee of the Hosking Houses Trust from 2012 to 2021, and now looks forward to selecting artist-residents to use the cottage’s studio extension.
