Rebecca Rabinow, the Leonard A. Lauder Curator of Modern Art and the Curator-in-Charge of the Leonard A. Lauder Research Center for Modern Art at the Metropolitan Museum joined the staff of the Museum in 1990. Since that time, she has helped organize more than twenty special exhibitions at the Metropolitan. Her most recent award-winning shows are The Steins Collect: Matisse, Picasso, and the Parisian Avant-Garde (2011-12) and Matisse: In Search of True Painting (2012-13). Roberta Smith described the latter in The New York Times as “one of the most thrillingly instructive exhibitions about this painter, or painting in general, that you may ever see.” Dr. Rabinow is currently preparing “Cubism: The Leonard A. Lauder Collection,” which will be on view at the Metropolitan from October 20, 2014-February 16, 2015. A graduate of Smith College and New York University’s Institute of Fine Arts, she currently serves as the Chair of The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Forum of Curators, Conservators, and Scientists.
