Meet the Curator of LACMA's Exhibit "To Rome and Back: Individualism and Authority in Art, 1500-1800"



Meet the Curator of LACMA's Exhibit

A special lecture held by Leah Lehmbeck, the curator of the LACMA's exhibition To Rome and Back: Individualism and Authority in Art, 1500–1800. Dr. Lehmbeck will address the narrative of the exhibition, as well as the nature of a show made almost entirely from the museum’s permanent collection.

Leah Lehmbeck is the Acting Department Head of European Painting and Sculpture and American Art.
She is trained as a modernist with a specialty in paintings from the French Revolution through the Second World War.
While working toward her PhD, which she received from the Institute of Fine Arts in 2007, she worked at Christie’s and the J. Paul Getty Museum.
Prior to joining LACMA in 2014, she served as curator of nineteenth and twentieth century art at the Norton Simon Museum. She has curated several exhibitions, and lectured and published widely, serving most recently as editor and author for several publications including Goya in the Norton Simon Museum (2016), Impressionist and Modern Art: The A. Jerrold Perenchio Collection (2017), and the forthcoming, three-volume catalogue on the extraordinary gifts of the Ahmanson Foundation to LACMA. She is also currently facilitating the art-related programming for LACMA’s new building project.
