The Kodak came­ra was intro­du­ced in 1888 and quic­kly cap­tu­red the ima­gi­na­tion of the public, ama­teur pho­to­gra­phers, and artists. Thou­sands of pho­to­gra­phs, only recen­tly disco­ve­red in the attics and archi­ves of artists wor­king in the 1890s, reveal their fasci­na­tion with this new tool. Whi­le some snap­sho­ts rela­te clo­se­ly to their pain­ted work, others indi­ca­te an explo­ra­tion far beyond the artists’ kno­wn work in oil on can­vas and expand our under­stan­ding of their oeu­vre.

Sin­ce 2007, Eli­za­beth Easton has been the Direc­tor of the Cen­ter for Cura­to­rial Lea­der­ship (CCL), a not-for-pro­fit orga­ni­za­tion she co-foun­ded with Agnes Gund to train museum cura­tors in the fun­da­men­tals of mana­ge­ment and lea­der­ship.
A distin­gui­shed cura­tor, art histo­rian and edu­ca­tor, she for­mu­la­ted the pro­gram for CCL as a direct result of her ser­vi­ce as the fir­st elec­ted pre­si­dent of the Asso­cia­tion of Art Museum Cura­tors (2003–2006), an orga­ni­za­tion of more than 1200 cura­tors from 350 museums across the Uni­ted Sta­tes. In her capa­ci­ty as pre­si­dent, she laun­ched an inqui­ry into the pro­fes­sio­nal deve­lo­p­ment of cura­tors that led to the crea­tion of CCL
