Anne Helmreich, Associate Professor, is a specialist in nineteenth-century European art with an emphasis in the art, architecture, and landscape design of Great Britain. She has taught period courses and seminars in nineteenth- and twentieth-century art as well as courses on issues of gender and sexuality, museum studies, and the history of photography. Her research interests include the relationship between art and national identity, representations of women, careers of women artists, the development of the art market, landscape and nature, and historic painting techniques.
Before coming to Case Western Reserve University, she taught at Texas Christian University. She has assisted with exhibitions at the Amon Carter Museum, the National Gallery of Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Grunwald Center for the Graphic Arts. Her recent book, The English Garden and National Identity, the Competing Styles of Garden Design, 1870-1914 (Cambridge University Press, 2002), received the Historians of British Art Prize for Best Book on a post-1800 topic. She has also been recognized for her teaching; for example, she was named Mortar Board Preferred Professor in 2000.
