About: Anne Helmreich

I'm a senior program officer at the Getty Foundation and an art historian specializing in 19th-century European, particularly British, art. Before coming to the Getty, I was associate professor of art history and director of the Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities at Case Western Reserve University. My scholarly work focuses on the history of the art market, the relationships between art and science, and the history of the built environment.

      From you have I been absent in the spring,
      When proud-pied April, dressed in all his trim,
      Hath put a spirit of youth in everything,
      That heavy Saturn laughed and leaped with him,
      Yet nor the lays of birds, nor the sweet smell
      Of different flowers in odor and in hue,
      Could make me any summer’s story tell,
      Or from their proud lap pluck them where they grew.
      Nor did I wonder at the lily’s white,
      Nor praise the deep vermilion in the rose;
      They were but sweet, but figures of delight,
      Drawn after you, you pattern of all those.
      Yet seemed it winter still, and, you away,
      As with your shadow I with these did play.

      —William Shakespeare, born April 23, 1564
