Shopping with Susan Weber

Posted in the 18th century in the news by Editor on July 27, 2010

For its regular ‘Home & Garden’ shopping column, The New York Times recently (21 July) featured Susan Weber — Director, Founder, and Professor at the Bard Graduate Center for Studies in the Decorative Arts (and, as the story notes, the former wife of George Soros). Persistence is the key theme of the profile — perhaps a virtue that fits well with our recent discussion of the status of eighteenth-century art historical studies. In any case, it’s a notable instance of mainstream exposure for an academic working in our period — however exceptional Weber may be — as well as exposure for a still relatively new program that’s already produced exciting results.
