Pat Kane has been at the Yale University Art Gallery since receiving her M.A. from the University of Delaware, Winterthur Program in Early American Culture, in 1968. She received her PH.D. from Yale in 1987. She currently oversees collections encompassing periods from the 17th century to the present, pursues research on early American silver and furniture, and is the director of the Rhode Island Furniture Archive. Her research has resulted in numerous scholarly books and lectures, and most recently a stunning new exhibition on Rhode Island furniture Art and Industry in Early America: Rhode Island Furniture, 1650–1830. Her breadth of knowledge is generously shared with those who ask, and the influence she has had on dealers and collectors everywhere can be felt in their better understanding and identification of decorative arts in the field.
