Molly Harrington is in her fourth year of the PhD program at Maryland, where she studies 17th century Dutch and Flemish art with Dr. Arthur Wheelock. She finished her master's degree at Maryland in 2012, and her thesis was titled "Reclaiming the 'Ancient Luster' of Painting: Pieter de Grebber's Regulen and Haarlem Classicism." She presented a portion of her work on this topic at the Middle Atlantic Symposium at the National Gallery of Art in March 2012. In addition to Dutch classicism and its relationship to art theory, Molly is interested in the patronage, iconography and use of paintings in secret Catholic churches in the Dutch Republic. Prior to her graduate studies, Molly graduated magna cum laude/Phi Beta Kappa from Washington and Lee University in 2010. At Washington and Lee, Molly presented a paper about local architecture at the 2009 Science, Society and the Arts Conference, and received a summer grant for independent research on her art history honors thesis. Molly also worked as an intern at the Maryland Historical Society in 2008, and currently volunteers as a docent at the Tudor Place Historic House and Gardens in Georgetown.
