MONTREAL.- The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts announces the appointment of Chloé M. Pelletier to the position of Curator of European Art (before 1800). This specialist of European art will be responsible for an extensive collection of paintings, works on paper and sculptures dating from the Middle Ages to the 18th century, including masterpieces of French and Italian art, an impressive body of religious objects, and a distinguished collection of paintings from the Dutch and Flemish Golden Age.

Reporting to the MMFA's Chief Curator, Pelletier will be charged with establishing a vision for, and enriching and promoting this collection that comprises nearly 1,100 works. She will also oversee the European art acquisition program and develop exhibitions in this subject area. Furthermore, she will be called on to contribute to publications and research reports, and to lend her expertise in lectures and mediation activities.

"We are delighted that Chloé will be joining the Museum's curatorial team. Her background and accomplishments speak to her outstanding ability to relate the art of the past to the present. The combination of her extensive knowledge of European art and her interest in the issues of our era make her an undeniable asset for fostering an appreciation of, developing and showcasing our collection," says Mary‑Dailey Desmarais, Chief Curator of the MMFA.

"It is an honour and a thrill to be stepping into this role. I feel energized by the opportunity to steward a collection of such depth and richness and to collaborate with a dynamic team of professionals across the Museum. I am looking forward to planting roots in such a forward-thinking institution and a city whose vibrancy and warmth have already won me over," says Chloé M. Pelletier, Curator of European Art (before 1800) at the MMFA.

Originally from Texas, Chloé M. Pelletier has held positions in universities and prominent museums in the United States, including the National Gallery of Art, in Washington, D.C., and the Art Institute of Chicago. Prior to joining the MMFA, she was Curatorial Associate in the Art Institute's Department of Painting and Sculpture of Europe. She has, among other projects, contributed to exhibitions on the sculpture of Antonio Canova and Camille Claudel. Pelletier holds a Master's and a PhD from the University of Chicago specialized in Italian Renaissance painting with secondary fields in environmental studies and arts of the early modern Atlantic world. Her essays and articles have notably been published in the exhibition catalogue Ornament and Illusion: Carlo Crivelli of Venice (Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum) and the journal postmedieval.
