Esther Bell

1 September 2015

Esther Bell is the type of curator that so many historical collections yearn for today: knowledgeable and scholarly, but with the savviness and connections to make things happen. She is a specialist in 17th- and 18th-century European art, and has held curatorial positions at some of the country’s top museums, including the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Morgan Library. Most recently, she worked at the Cincinnati Art Museum, where she curated exhibitions on Impressionist pastels and on François Boucher.
