Loren Whittaker earned her PhD in the History of Art at the University of Kansas, with American Art as a focus. Her mastery of assessing works of art began with her dissertation that analyzed the condition, attribution, and provenance of a large, privately held collection of European paintings, sculptures, works on paper, and metalwork spanning from the early-fifteenth to mid-eighteenth centuries. Loren examines and appraises private and public collections throughout the Kansas City and St. Louis areas, and in Park City, UT. Her professional experience also includes research positions in the curatorial departments of the American Art and American Indian Art collections at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. Dr. Whittaker has taught art history overseas and in the United States and currently teaches at the Kansas City Art Institute.
