Carr retires as the Portland Art Museum’s European Curator

Postby AfricanMustang » Fri Apr 23, 2021 2:42 pm

The Portland Art Museum and its community are expressing their deep gratitude to Dawson W. Carr, Ph.D., as he retires this month as The Janet and Richard Geary Curator of European Art. Dr. Carr’s final day at the Museum is April 30.

Dr. Carr joined the Museum in 2013 as the Museum’s first full-time curator of European painting and sculpture. He was responsible for the research, documentation, and interpretation of art made in Europe from antiquity to 1900, as well as the organization of exhibitions and the development of the collection. Dr. Carr has been a vital member of the Museum’s curatorial team, collaborating across collection areas and energizing the European collection. His passion for European art and history, combined with his thoroughness and storytelling talents made him a visitor and member favorite at lectures and education programs. A virtual celebration for Dr. Carr took place earlier this month, and a search for his replacement will commence in the coming months.

Prior to joining the Museum, Dr. Carr served as the Curator of Spanish and Italian Paintings 1600–1800 at The National Gallery in London and as curator at the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles. He received a B.F.A. from Southern Methodist University, where his passion for the art of Spain began while working at the Meadows Museum. He earned his doctorate from the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University. Dr. Carr has written extensively on Italian and Spanish art of the Renaissance and Baroque periods.
