Marianne Berardi holds a PhD from the University of Pittsburgh (1998: Science into Art: Rachel Ruysch’s Early Development as a Still-Life Painter). Throughout her art historical career, she has paid particular attention to the contributions of women artists, who were traditionally left out of the art historical canon. Holding degrees in both American and Dutch seventeenth-century art, she has worked in both fields. She has been the recipient of Kress, Mellon, American Association of University Women and Theodore Rousseau Fellowships. She has taught art history at the University of Pittsburgh, the Kansas City Art Institute, John Carroll University, and Case Western Reserve University. She is a former director of the Albrecht-Kemper Museum of Art, St. Joseph, Missouri and the Cleveland Artists Foundation, Cleveland, Ohio, where her tenure at the latter ignited her scholarly interest in the rich art history of Cleveland to which the story of Clarence Carter belongs. Over the course of her career, she has curated over 60 exhibitions; authored books, scholarly and popular articles, and exhibition catalogues in her twin fields; and worked for two auction houses as a painting specialist. Currently, Berardi serves as Senior Specialist and Consignment Director of European Art at Heritage Auctions, Dallas, Texas. A specialist in Dutch still-life painting, she is the recognized scholar on the work of Rachel Ruysch (1664-1750), one of Holland’s premier flower painters and its most successful woman artist. Her forthcoming book on Ruysch will be published by Lund Humphries, London; she is also bringing to completion her catalogue raisonné of the artist’s oeuvre.
