Historical Note
Historical Note
In 1970, the Department of Painting and Sculpture was divided into two units: the Department of Contemporary Art, which was concerned with artists active in the 20th century, and the Department of 18th and 19th Century Painting and Sculpture, concerned with 18th and 19th century artists. The separation endured until 1983. William H. Truettner joined the staff in 1969 as Associate Curator. In 1977 he was named Curator.
