Juror Eric M. Lee
Eric M. Lee has served as the fourth director of the Kimbell Art Museum since March 2009. During this time, the Museum underwent design development and construction of a new pavilion designed by Renzo Piano, which opened in late 2013 and complements Louis Kahn's original landmark structure of 1972. Acquisition highlights of Lee's tenure include Michelangelo's Torment of Saint Anthony, which is the only painting by the artist in the Americas; Poussin's Ordination, from the artist's famed series of Seven Sacraments; and Ruisdael's Edge of a Forest by a Grainfield, which is now one of the most important Dutch landscapes in America. Exhibitions hosted by the Kimbell during Lee's directorship include Caravaggio and His Followers in Rome (2011-12), Bernini: Sculpting in Clay (2013), Fiery Pool: The Maya and the Mythic Sea (2010), The Age of Picasso and Matisse: Modern Masters from the Art Institute of Chicago (2013-14), Faces of Impressionism: Portraits from the Musee d'Orsay (2014-15), Gustave Caillebotte: The Painter's Eye, among others.
Previously, Lee served as director of Cincinnati's Taft Museum of Art and of the art museum at the University of Oklahoma. Earlier in his career, he worked at the Yale Center for British Art and on the staff of the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence in Washington, D.C.
A native of North Carolina, Lee received B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. degrees, all in the history of art, from Yale University. He is married to photographer Rima Canaan Lee and has two sons, ages 12 and 14.
