Most recently, she was curator and co-author for Frédéric Bazille and the Birth of Impressionism, which was organized by the Musée Fabre, Montpellier and the Musée d’Orsay, Paris and the National Gallery of Art (2016–2017).

Jones has lectured and published articles on a number of topics related to French art of the 19th century and is currently overseeing the publication of the systematic catalogue of the Gallery’s collection of later 19th-century French paintings.
