Edouard Kopp, formerly associate curator of drawings at the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles, is now the Maida and George Abrams Associate Curator of Drawings in the Harvard Art Museums’ division of European and American art.

Kopp is expected to specialize in pre-20th-century drawing, and has previously organized shows of Klimt, Théodore Rousseau, and Edme Bouchardon (a lesser-known but academically celebrated 18th-century French sculptor).

The Harvard collection is strong in 18th and 19th century European works.

Kopp was educated at the Courtauld Institute, the art-history and conservation college attached to the University of London.
