Cabelle Ahn is PhD candidate in History of Art & Architecture at Harvard University where she specializes in eighteenth-century French drawings. Her dissertation is titled "Multiple Exposures: Drawing Exhibitions in Eighteenth-century France," and the project maps public and private drawing displays from late seventeenth-century Florence to early nineteenth-century Paris, and traces how the increased circulation of drawings impacted the art market, public taste, and contributed to technological advancements in Enlightenment Europe.
Her interest in eighteenth century art began during her gap year in Paris in 2007. She majored in Art History at Wellesley College ('12) and holds MA degrees from the Courtauld Institute of Art ('13) and at the Bard Graduate Center ('15). Her research interests include history of the art market, culinary history, and the intersection between contemporary art and the eighteenth century.
She is currently based in Brooklyn, NY.
