Marina Kliger works closely with the Margaret S. Winthrop Curator of European Art, and others, to conduct original research related to the acquisition, study, curatorial care, and display of the museums’ collection of 18th- and 19th-century European art. Her scholarly interests are focused on the roles of gender, historical consciousness, and cross-cultural contact in early 19th-century French visual culture and collecting practices. She is currently researching several new acquisitions, including a recent bequest from the collections of Arthur K. and Mariot F. Solomon. Before coming to the Harvard Art Museums, Kliger held positions at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Brooklyn Museum, the National Gallery of Art, and the Art Institute of Chicago.
