Anne Dulau studied at Toulouse Le Mirail Université and St Andrews University, graduating with an MPhil in Anglo-Saxon History in 1995 and a postgraduate diploma in Museum and Gallery Studies in 1996. She has been curator of French and British Art at The Hunterian since 1997, working on a number of exhibitions celebrating the strength of The Hunterian’s collection. This included a touring exhibition around the Scottish Colourists that was part of the 2004 Entente Cordiale celebrations and was shown at the Mona Bismark Foundation in Paris under the title Les Colouristes Ecossais. Recent focus has been on eighteenth-century art, working on a number of exhibitions accompanied by catalogues, including My Highest Pleasures; William Hunter’s Art Collection (2007), and Boucher & Chardin: Masters of Modern Manners (2008).
Research interests include eighteenth-century art, with a strong focus on exchanges between France and Britain, on the history of collections and on our founder William Hunter's involvement with the art world. The Glasgow Boys and the Scottish Colourists, particularly their interaction with France, are also a strong focus. More recently, the 100 or so sketchbooks documenting contemporary Scottish landscape Duncan Shanks's lifelong interest in the Clyde Valley and his own garden have been the subject of ongoing curatorial study.
