The Leiden Collection announced the appointment of Dr. Elizabeth Nogrady as its Curator. Nogrady, who assumed her role on January 3, will facilitate collaborations with institutions nationally and internationally, assume editorial responsibilities for the Collection’s online catalogue, and continue the Collection’s commitment to educational outreach.
Nogrady joins The Leiden Collection from the Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center at Vassar College, where she served as the Andrew W. Mellon Curator of Academic Programs. In that position, she was responsible for strengthening the link between Vassar’s academic departments and the Loeb, encouraging the use of the collection’s more than 22,000 objects for teaching and research in art history and non-art subjects alike. Prior to joining the Loeb, Nogrady was an Associate Specialist in the Department of Old Master Paintings at Christie’s. She also held fellowships at The Metropolitan Museum of Art and The Morgan Library and Museum, and was a graduate student assistant at the Holocaust Claims Processing Office of the New York State Department of Financial Services. She has been a member of CODART since 2019.
Nogrady received her PhD in art history from the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University, where she specialized in seventeenth-century Dutch and Flemish art. Nogrady has curated, published, and lectured extensively in the United States — most recently at The Cleveland Museum of Art’s symposium for the exhibition Tales of the City: Drawing in the Netherlands from Bosch to Bruegel, where she presented the talk “City Limits: Abraham Bloemaert’s Landscapes with Colored Washes”.
