Since her graduation from The Courtauld in 1991, Kaywin Feldman has held the role of Director in three separate cultural institutions, and commencing 11th March 2019, this number will become four. Recently appointed as the Director of the National Gallery of Art in Washington, Feldman will be the first woman to tackle this internationally important role, her next in a list of impressive career developments.


Before starting at The Courtauld, Feldman did her undergraduate degree in archaeology at the University of Michigan. Following this, she completed a master’s degree at the Institute of Archaeology at the University of London, before making the change to art history and completing a second master’s at The Courtauld. Here, she specialised in Dutch and Flemish art with Professor Joanna Woodall, who continues to teach at The Courtauld to this day.
