Gloria Groom— Chair of 
European Painting and Sculpture at the Art Institute of Chicago and former Rotary Scholar

An internationally acclaimed scholar and author on 19th Century French painting Gloria Groom is currently Chair of European Painting and Sculpture and the David and Mary Winton Green Curator at The Art Institute of Chicago.  A native of Tulsa, Oklahoma, with a PhD from the University of Texas at Austin, and a degree in museology from the Ecole du Louvre, Paris, Dr, Groom joined the Art Institute in 1985. Since then, she has been involved in major monographic exhibitions and catalogues including Gauguin, Odilon Redon, Caillebotte, Renoir, Manet, Seurat, Toulouse-Lautrec, and thematic exhibitions such as Beyond the Easel: Decorative Paintings of Bonnard, Vuillard, Denis, and Roussel, the art dealer Ambroise Vollard (2008), Impressionism, Fashion and Modernity (2012-2013), Van Gogh’s Bedrooms (2016) and Gauguin: Artist as Alchemist (2017) and Manet and Modern Beauty, devoted to the little-known paintings, pastels, and watercolors of the artist’s last years, which opened at the Art Institute this May and travels to the J. Paul Getty Museum, Santa Monica. 
Her current exhibition projects include a highly focused career-retrospective on Paul Cezanne in collaboration with Tate Moderne, 2021-2022. 
Dr. Groom has also led the project for monographic on-line scholarly collection catalogues on the Impressionist collection (to date:  Monet, Renoir, Pissarro, Caillebotte, Gauguin. Manet with Cezanne forthcoming) involving an international team of scholars, conservators and scientists. She has been named Chevalier des arts et des lettres and became an Officier in 2013.  In 2016 she was honored as a Chevalier in the Légion d’honneur.
