Crow in 2010
Thomas E. Crow (born 1948) is an American art historian and art critic
who is best known for his influential writing on the role of art in modern
society and culture.
Crow was born in Chicago in 1948, and moved to San Diego, California
in 1961.[1] He received a B.A. from Pomona College in 1969, and his M.A.
in 1975 and Ph.D. in 1978, both from the University of California, Los
In his early career, Crow focused on French art of the eighteenth and
early nineteenth centuries. His work from this period includes his books
Painters and Public Life in Eighteenth Century Paris (1985) and
Emulation: Making Artists for Revolutionary France (1995). More
recently, his work has involved modern and contemporary American art.
This recent work includes The Long March of Pop; Art, Music, and
Design 1930 to 1995. In a return to his earlier field, he delivered the 2015
Andrew W. Mellon Lectures at the National Gallery, Washington, on the
subject, "Restoration as Event and Idea: Art in Europe 1814-1820." That
work was supported by a 2014-15 J.S. Guggenheim Fellowship.
Crow has held teaching positions at the California Institute of the Arts,
the University of Chicago, Princeton University, the University of
Michigan, Ann Arbor, the University of Sussex, Yale University and the
University of Southern California.[3] He served as director of the Getty
Research Institute from 2000 to 2007, and started a new position as the
Rosalie Solow Professor of Modern Art at New York University's Institute
of Fine Arts in September 2007.[4]
Crow is a contributing editor to Artforum.[5]
