We sat down with Peter Trippi, Editor-in-Chief of Fine Art Connoisseur Magazine. Peter directed New York’s Dahesh Museum of Art, which specialized in 19th-century European academic painting and sculpture; before that, he held senior posts at the Brooklyn Museum and Baltimore Museum of Art.
In 2002, Phaidon Press published Trippi’s monograph J W Waterhouse, which reassesses the Victorian painter best known for his Lady of Shalott at Tate Britain. Trippi went on to co-curate the Waterhouse retrospective that appeared 2008-2010 in the Netherlands, England, and Canada. In 2016, Trippi co-curated the exhibition Lawrence Alma-Tadema: At Home in Antiquity, which is visiting three European museums through 2017: the Fries Museum (Leeuwarden, Netherlands), Belvedere (Vienna, Austria), and Leighton House Museum (London). Trippi co-edited and contributed to the 250-page book that accompanies the project.
Peter will host the up coming Figurative Art Convention and Expo, November 8-11 in Miami, Florida which will pull together some of the best figurative artists in the world.
