Nancy Green is the Gale and Ira Drukier Curator of European and American Art, Prints, and Drawings, 1800-1945, at Cornell's Herbert F. Johnson Museum of Art. She joined the Johnson Museum staff in 1985 and during the past 30 years has organized dozens of exhibitions at the Johnson Museum and elsewhere. While the subjects of these exhibitions are wide-ranging, her principal interest is in American and European art from the 19th century to the present.
Nancy has published numerous articles, exhibition guides, and catalogues including JapanAmerica: Points of Contact, 1876-1900 and A Room of Their Own: Bloomsbury Artists in American Collection (2009), named by the Boston Globe as the best university exhibition of 2010. Her Byrdcliffe: An American Arts and Crafts Colony (2004) won the Moe Prize as well as an award from the Metropolitan Chapter of the Victorian Society for Catalogue of Distinction. Other publications include Surrealist Works on Paper from the Drukier Collection (2003), Susan Rothenberg: Drawings and Prints (1998), and Arthur Wesley Dow and American Arts and Crafts (1999), which accompanied the traveling exhibition organized by the American Federation of Arts.
Nancy received her BA from Connecticut College and her MA in art history from Williams College. She worked at the Williamstown Art Conservation Center, the Williams College Museum of Art, and at Christie's Auction House in New York before coming to Cornell.
