Winterthur welcomes Dr. Marie-Stephanie Delamaire as Associate Curator of Fine Art
Dr. Delamaire earned her Ph.D., in Art History from Columbia University, where she also worked as a lecturer in the Department of Art History and Archaeology.

WINTERTHUR, DE.- Winterthur Museum, Garden & Library announced that Marie-Stéphanie Delamaire, Ph.D., will join the Museum July 13, 2015, as Associate Curator of Fine Art. Dr. Delamaire will be responsible for curating the Museum’s collection of nearly 5,000 prints, paintings, and sculpture from the 17th, 18th, and 19th centuries. In addition to her curatorial responsibilities, Dr. Delamaire will teach in University of Delaware’s graduate level Winterthur Program in American Material Culture.

“Stephanie joins the Winterthur curatorial department as the Associate Curator of Fine Art to oversee an important and growing part of the collection," said Dr. David Roselle, Director of Winterthur. “We are confident that Stephanie will soon make Winterthur’s substantial collection of prints, paintings, maps, photographs, and sculpture be an added attraction for the many persons who visit our well known decorative arts collection.”

Linda Eaton, the John L. and Marjorie P. McGraw Director of Collections and Senior Curator of Textiles, said, “With a background both in the arts and the sciences, Stephanie brings a wide range of experience to Winterthur. We look forward to seeing where her fresh eye and keen mind will take her as she works with our collection, which includes iconic works of art by important artists such as Benjamin West and John Singleton Copley, among others.”

Dr. Delamaire earned her Ph.D., in Art History from Columbia University, where she also worked as a lecturer in the Department of Art History and Archaeology. She also holds a master’s degree in Egyptian Archaeology from l’Ecole du Louvre. While her studies began in France, her interests turned to American art, and her primary field of expertise is the history of American art from the Colonial era to World War I. In particular, Delamaire has investigated how translation developed in 19th-century American art with the expansion of the publishing industry and the formation of an American school of painting. Her research has been supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Caroline and Erwin Swann Foundation for Caricature and Cartoon, the American Historical Print Collectors Society, the Smithsonian American Art Museum, and the Terra Foundation for American Art.

In addition to her research, Dr. Delamaire served on the advisory committee for the preparation of the exhibition New Eyes on America: the Genius of Richard Caton Woodville at The Walters Museum of Art in Baltimore, Maryland, and as the curatorial research assistant for the New-York Historical Society exhibition Group Dynamics: Family Portraits & Scenes of Everyday Life at the New-York Historical Society.
