Background
Ebria Feinblatt (1913-1990) was the first curator of prints and drawings at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art where she worked from 1947 to 1985. She studied, collected and wrote on topics ranging from ancient art to German Gothic to modern art, but she was best known for her studies in Bolognese seventeenth-century quadrature painting. She wrote a number of art books including: Drawings in the Collection of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (1970), Toulouse-Lautrec and his Contemporaries: Posters of the Belle Epoque from the Wagner Collection (1985), and Seventeenth-Century Bolognese Ceiling Decorators (1992). Upon her death, her brother Ronn Marvin donated her personal papers and other gifts to LACMA.
