Anne Leonard Named Manton Curator

The Clark Art Institute announces the appointment of Anne Leonard as the Manton Curator of Prints, Drawings, and Photographs. Leonard will be responsible for the care and growth of the Clark’s works on paper collection, oversee the ongoing exhibition program in the Eugene V. Thaw Gallery for Works on Paper, supervise the Manton Study Center for Works on Paper, and contribute to other curatorial and academic initiatives. She joins the Clark staff in January 2019.
“Anne Leonard is an inspired curator and a talented teacher—a combination that will be so important to her role as the Manton Curator of Prints, Drawings, and Photographs,” said Olivier Meslay, the Hardymon Director of the Clark Art Institute. “While her expertise in nineteenth-century European art is ideally suited to the scope of our collection, Anne brings great insight and curiosity about the entire works on paper collection. Her creativity will surely inform the exhibitions she will organize at the Clark."
