About the Author

Considered the expert scholar on Florine Stettheimer's work, Barbara Bloemink has written extensively on her and co-curated the artist's 1995 Whitney Museum Retrospective. Formerly the director and chief of five art museums including the Smithsonian's National Design Museum and Guggenheim Hermitage Museum, she has curated over 70 exhibitions, published extensively, lectured and taught internationally on art and design. She received a Ph.D. from Yale University.


"Stettheimer's work, like her personal life, has suffered from a dearth of rigorous, good-faith appraisals, and because it isn't easily lumped in with the era's major movements, it was written off as lovely but ultimately unclassifiable and therefore a blip in art history. Barbara Bloemink's new biography, The Life and Art of Florine Stettheimer, rectifies this by engaging with the work on its own terms, rather than by stretching it to fit prefabricated discourses on American modern art."-- "The Nation"

"Bloemink produced one of the first definitive biographies, The Life and Art of Florine Stettheimer (1995). Now, with Florine Stettheimer: A Biography, Bloemink updates, corrects, and expands her previous opus. . . . Her writing is suffused with the joie de vivre often attributed to her subject matter."-- "Bookforum"
