Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum names Anne-Marie Eze new Associate Curator

The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum has appointed Dr. Anne-Marie Eze as the Associate Curator of the Collection. Eze had been working as the Museum’s first Andrew W. Mellon Postdoctoral Curatorial Fellow since 2010. She began her new position on April 1.

During her time at the Museum, Eze has researched and raised the profile of the museum’s manuscripts and rare books collection through her exhibition Illuminating the Serenissima: Books of the Republic of Venice (2011), scholarly publications and public programs. Eze also assisted the Lia and William Poorvu Curator of the Collection Oliver Tostmann with the exhibition and catalogue Anders Zorn: A European Artist Seduces America (2013), and his predecessor Alan Chong with the publication of Furnishing a Museum: Isabella Stewart Gardner’s Collection of Italian Furniture.

Originally from the United Kingdom, Eze studied classics (B.A.), and library science (M.A.) with a concentration in manuscript studies and historical bibliography, at University College London. A year of her undergraduate degree was spent at the University of Bologna, Italy, where she became fluent in Italian. From 2003-2006, Eze worked as an assistant curator at the Victoria and Albert Museum, and in 2010 completed a collaborative doctorate in art history at the Courtauld Institute of Art and the department of Western Manuscripts of the British Library.
