Amy Von Lintel

Rik Andersen

Amy Von Lintel is the Doris Alexander Endowed Distinguished Professor of Fine Arts and Associate Professor of Art History at West Texas A&M University, where she also directs the Gender Studies Program. Her research areas include the popularization of art history as a field in illustrated books and public exhibitions and, since her move to the Texas Panhandle in 2010, the status of West Texas as an artistic crossroads in the 20th century. Along with her recently published work on Georgia O’Keeffe in Texas, she has collaboratively produced a volume on Robert Smithson’s Texas projects,including his final work Amarillo Ramp,and she is now at work on another volume on Elaine de Kooning’s time in the region. Von Lintel has also published essays on women art historians in the nineteenth-century, on blockbuster art history exhibitions in 1850s England, and on wood engravings and art history in the journal Modernism/modernity.She received her BA from the University of Kansas, her MA from Southern Methodist University, and her PhD from the University of Southern California. Her research has been generously supported by her home institution as well as the Council for European Studies, the Yale Center for British Art, the American Association of University Women, the Friends of the Princeton University Library, and the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum. She currently lives in Amarillo, Texas with her husband and their three children.
