Hayley Eaves


Hayley Eaves is a Master’s student in Art History at McGill University working under the supervision of Professor Chriscinda Henry. Her research interests pertain to the convergence between theater and art in eighteenth-century Venice, the satirical works of Giandomenico Tiepolo, the role and representation of puppetry in Early Modern Italy, France and England, the visual culture of commedia dell’arte and the character type of the ‘fool’ in art and literature. Hayley was the recipient of the 2016-2017 Max Stern Museum Fellowship which has supported her research on a pair of Indonesian shadow puppets at McGill’s Visual Arts Collection. Through her research on puppetry, Hayley aims to shed new light on an often neglected and misunderstood area of visual and material culture studies.
