MA 1967


Engulfed by art at a young age, there is no doubt not only that Anne d’Harnoncourt was curious about its many historical paths and theoretical features, but that creativity ran in her veins.


A graduate of Radcliffe College, Massachusetts, with a BA in History and English Literature, d’Harnoncourt moved to London where she undertook an MA in nineteenth-century painting at The Courtauld, where she found the field of expertise in which she would excel – Marcel Duchamp’s life and work. During just one year studying here, she worked at the Tate Gallery, preparing full catalogue entries for Pre-Raphaelite paintings and drawings.
