        • Short Bio:

          Wanda M. Corn, Robert and Ruth Halperin Professor Emerita, Stanford University is preparing a 2011 exhibition and book--Seeing Gertrude Stein: Five Stories--for the Contemporary Jewish Museum of San Francisco and the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery in Washington DC. Retired from teaching in 2007, she continues to be a guest curator of major museum exhibitions.  Her museum exhibitions and books include The Color of Mood: American Tonalism 1990-1910 (1972); The Art of Andrew Wyeth (1973); and Grant Wood: The Regionalist Vision (1983). In 2005-06, she transformed her major study, The Great American Thing: Modern Art and American Identity, 1915-35, published by University of California Press in 1999, into a museum exhibition. Dr. Corn’s scholarship on transatlantic modernism focuses on the exchanges and interdependencies of modern artists in Paris and New York, conceptualizing an Atlantic rim of avant-garde culture. She has just completed a book on the decorations woman artists made for the 1893 Woman’s Building at the World’s Columbian Exposition in Chicago.
