Meadows Museum in Dallas Names Amanda W. Dotseth Curator

The Meadows Museum at the Southern Methodist University in Dallas has appointed Amanda W. Dotseth to the position of curator. A specialist in the Spanish Middle Ages, Dotseth is currently completing a Meadows/Mellon/Prado postdoctoral fellowship at the museum. She will begin her new role on September 19.

During the two-year fellowship, Dotseth worked on a number of exhibitions, including “Zurbarán: Jacob and His Twelve Sons, Paintings from Auckland Castle” (2017); “Chillida in Dallas: De Música at the Meyerson” (2018); and “At the Beach: Mariano Fortuny y Marsal and William Merritt Chase” (2018). She also coordinated the first colloquium of current and former Meadows/Mellon/Prado fellows and organized a symposium on medieval Spanish art featuring internationally recognized scholars in the field.

After Dotseth earned her master’s degree from the Southern Methodist University in 2006, she worked as an assistant curator at the Meadows Museum for three years. She left to complete her Ph.D. at the Courtauld Institute of Art. During her doctoral studies, Dotseth served as a pre-doctoral fellow at the Spanish National Research Council in Madrid.

Commenting on her return to the institution, Dotseth said: “I take pride in the long relationship I have had with the Meadows Museum and its staff. I remain invested in the success of the institution, which, like me, has grown and diversified significantly since my tenure as assistant curator.”
