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.

      I do not like crooked, twisted, blasted trees. I admire them much more if they are tall, straight, and flourishing. I do not like ruined, tattered cottages. I am not fond of nettles or thistles, or heath blossoms. I have more pleasure in a snug farm-house than a watch-tower—and a troop of tidy, happy villages please me better than the finest banditti in the world.”
