By Diane DeMell Jacobsen, Ph.D., Trustee, Thomas H. and Diane DeMell Jacobsen Foundation

Dr. Diane Jacobsen, whose major collection is presented in The Art of Seating: Two Hundred Years of American Design, is a distinguished scholar, art collector and dynamic speaker. Her collection of more than 250 works of American art is nationally recognized for its depth and breadth of museum quality paintings, sculpture and decorative arts. Ranging from early 19th century to today, the encyclopedic, scholarly survey stresses the formation of a national character and shows the unique history of American art through a majority of important movements.
