Jacquelyn N. Coutré joined the Agnes Etherington Art Centre as Bader Curator and Researcher of European Art in 2015. She received her MA and PhD from the Institute of Fine Arts of New York University and her BA from Indiana University. Prior to arriving at Queen's, she held curatorial positions at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Indianapolis Museum of Art, and the National Gallery of Art. She has also taught at a number of institutions and has published in the Journal of Historians of Netherlandish Art, Dutch Crossing, and the Allgemeines Künstlerlexikon. Her research explores the intersections between art and society, addressing themes such as the mobility of artists, political programs for institutional spaces, art in Amsterdam in the third quarter of the seventeenth century, the history of collecting, and artists' biographies. She is currently an Associate Editor of the Journal of Historians of Netherlandish Art. In September 2019 Coutré left the Agnes to join The Art Institute of Chicago as the Eleanor Wood Prince Associate Curator of European Painting and Sculpture before 1750.
