Sixteen scholars from Russia, Vienna, and the United States explore the fate of Russian art collections and libraries following the Russian Revolution in 1917, the institutions and individuals responsible for their sale, and the prominent collectors, libraries, and museums that acquired them.
Anne received a Bachelor of Arts from Middlebury College in 1958 and a Master of Arts from Columbia University in 1963.
Anne Odom’s interest in Russian art began in the early 1970s when her husband, Army Lieutenant General William E. Odom, was posted to the United States Embassy in Moscow as a military attache. He later served as director of the National Security Agency under President Ronald Reagan.
Anne joined Hillwood as a guide in 1978, a year after the estate of the late cereal heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post opened to the public. The post had maintained the largest private collection of Russian artwork outside of Russia.
After joining Hillwood, Odom conducted research at the Hermitage museum in St. Petersburg, Russia, and wrote books about Post’s collection. Hillwood houses thousands of precious objects, most from the 18th and 19th centuries. It has more than 80 pieces from the Faberge design house as well as silver, porcelain, and portraits from the czarist era.
Odom became a chief curator in 1991 and served simultaneously as chief curator and deputy director of collections from 1997 to 2001. As an authority on Russian art, Odom also contributed to academic studies at the Smithsonian Institution and New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art.
