K. L. H. Wells

Art History


Wells earned a B.A. from Barnard College and an M.A. from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, both in art history. She has contributed research to curatorial projects at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, the Milwaukee Art Museum, and most recently to the Pacific Standard Time exhibition at the Getty Center. Her publications include “Artistes contre Liciers: La Renaissance de la Tapisserie Française,” in Decorum (Paris: Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris and Skira Flammarion, 2013); “Serpentine Sideboards, Hogarth’s Analysis, and the Beautiful Self,” Eighteenth Century Studies (Spring 2013); and “Curating the Cultural Landscape: Chipstone House as Historical Property,” The International Journal of the Inclusive Museum (2009). Her dissertation, Tapestry and Tableau: Revival, Reproduction, and the Marketing of Modernism, enables a new understanding of international modernism by exploring the close relationship between modernist painting and tapestry in the decades following World War II.
