Joachim Homann is responsible for the European and American collection of drawings. His current curatorial projects include the first comprehensive survey of American watercolors from about 1890 to 1990. With Susanne Ebbinghaus, he oversees curatorial contributions to Index, the Harvard Art Museums’ online magazine. Before arriving at the museums, Homann was head of the curatorial team at the Bowdoin College Museum of Art, in Brunswick, Maine, where he organized numerous exhibitions on European and American art with a special emphasis on works on paper. _Why Draw? 500 Years of Drawings and Watercolors_(2017) presented an in-depth introduction to Bowdoin’s collection of drawings. Their collection, established in 1811, was the first of its kind in the country.
