The Centre for American Art at The Courtauld was established in September 2016 with the help of a generous grant from the Terra Foundation of American Art. The Centre exists to support and develop research in the field of American art of all periods, from the earliest moment to the present day, and in its international, transnational and global contexts.

The Centre for American Art will organise major international conferences, host regular seminar series of visiting speakers, welcome Visiting Professors, support PhD students research-related travel to the US, and develop and run major research projects in the field. It will provide an intellectual home and focus for The Courtauld’s PhD and MA students in the American art. The Centre will seek to develop relationships with European and UK partners and will act as a focus to extend existing international collaborations with historians of American art in North America and Europe. We have initiated a partnership with the University of Delaware that will lead to exchanges of graduate students and faculty and the development of joint research projects and events.
