We are thrilled and honored to announce that the Awards Juror for the 92nd Grand National Exhibition is Mr. Peter Trippi, Editor in Chief of Fine Art Connoisseur magazine!
Peter Trippi has edited Fine Art Connoisseur since 2006. Previously, he directed New York’s Dahesh Museum of Art, which specialized in 19th-century European academic painting and sculpture; before that, he held senior posts at the Brooklyn Museum and Baltimore Museum of Art.
In 2002, Phaidon Press published Trippi’s monograph J W Waterhouse, which reassesses the Victorian painter best known for his Lady of Shalott at Tate Britain. Trippi went on to co-curate the Waterhouse retrospective that appeared 2008-2010 in the Netherlands, England, and Canada. In 2016, Trippi co-curated the exhibition Lawrence Alma-Tadema: At Home in Antiquity, which is visiting three European museums through 2017: the Fries Museum (Leeuwarden, Netherlands), Belvedere (Vienna, Austria), and Leighton House Museum (London). Trippi co-edited and contributed to the 250-page book that accompanies the project (Prestel).
He is currently president of the Association of Historians of Nineteenth-Century Art and of the Foundation of the American Institute for Conservation. He is former chair of the Courtauld Institute of Art’s U.S. Alumni Group, and past president of Historians of British Art.
