Talitha Maria G. Schepers works closely with the Maida and George Abrams Curator of Drawings, as well as other curators, to conduct original, scholarly research related to the acquisition, study, curatorial care, and display of the museums’ collection of early modern Flemish and Dutch drawings. Passionate about curatorship, teaching, and public outreach, Schepers specializes in early modern Netherlandish art and global encounters. She recently completed her Ph.D. dissertation on works on paper by Netherlandish artists. Before joining the Harvard Art Museums, she undertook a work placement at the Victoria and Albert Museum (London) and a graduate internship in drawings at The J. Paul Getty Museum (Los Angeles).
