Remembering Dora Wiebenson

December 10, 2019

We are saddened to learn of the death of Dora Wiebenson, who passed away on  August 20, 2019.

 

Professor Wiebenson received her Ph.D from NYU’s  Institute of Fine Arts and taught 18th and 19th century architectural history at the University of Virginia. She was a distinguished scholar in her field,  a pioneer of 18th-century visual studies, and was also one of the first female full professors in the discipline. It was Prof. Wiebenson who had the inspired idea in 1993 to establish the ASECS affiliate group Historians of Eighteenth-Century Art and Architecture; HECAA just celebrated its 25th anniversary with an immensely successful conference, hosted by SMU.  She had a major role in composing HECAA's first constitution and the ASECS/HECAA Wiebenson Prize was named in her honor.
