Veronica Maria White received her B.A. from Princeton University, and her Ph.D. from Columbia University, where she specialized in Italian Renaissance and Baroque art. She served as a postdoctoral fellow at the Morgan Library and Museum, and worked as an exhibition assistant at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, in both the department of Drawings and Prints and the department of European Sculpture and Decorative Arts. Veronica also taught at Columbia University, Rutgers University, and Vassar College. Her publications include articles on the drawings of Guercino and Annibale Carracci, and on the prints of Jacques Callot. As the Curator of Teaching and Learning, Veronica serves as a liaison between different academic departments and the museum, teaches in the galleries and study rooms, works with the student guides, and oversees the internship programs. Through her teaching experiences in the Museum, she has become increasingly interested in interdisciplinary approaches to the collections and has designed several related installations, including: The Bubonic Plague in Early Modern Italy; Going to Extremes: Physiognomy, Caricature, and Studies of Expression; Art and Climate: Making the Invisible Visible; and Fluid Motions: A Conversation between Art and Physics.
With Laura Giles, the Heather and Paul G. Haaga Jr., Class of 1970, Curator of Prints and Drawings, Veronica co-curated States of Health: Visualizing Illness and Healing (2019), an exhibition featuring over eighty works of globe-spanning art that examine societal anxiety around pandemics and infectious disease, respond to mental illness, present the hopes and dangers associated with childbirth, and explore the complexities of care.
