LONDON.- Dr. Deuchar stepped down as director of Tate Britain last December and brings a wealth of experience with him. He directed the creation of Tate Britain in 2000 at Millbank, home of the original Tate Gallery.

During his time at Tate, Stephen Deuchar oversaw the realisation of a wealth of ambitious exhibitions, including major retrospectives of William Blake (2000) and Lucian Freud (2002), as well as the hugely popular group shows, Turner, Whistler, Monet (2005) and, most recently, the critically-acclaimed Turner and the Masters (2009).

During his time at Tate, Stephen Deuchar has worked closely with The Art Fund on various fundraising initiatives, including the campaign to secure Rubens’s Sketch for the Banqueting House Ceiling last year, towards which The Art Fund contributed £600,000. He also took an active role in The Art Fund’s successful campaign to acquire Turner’s "Blue Rigi" in 2007. The evocative watercolour was saved for the nation for £4.95 million. It now stands proudly in the newly re-hung Turner galleries at Tate Britain.

Prior to working at Tate he spent 12 years as a curator and exhibitions director at the National Maritime Museum. Educated at the universities of London and Yale, Stephen Deuchar has a strong interest in contemporary art and is a specialist in 18th-century British art. His publications include 'Sporting Art in Eighteenth-Century England: A Social and Political History, (Yale University Press, 1988).
