ArtMuse was founded by Natasha Schlesinger, an award-winning art historian and art advisor who has worked in the art field for over 25 years. Schlesinger began her career working at art galleries in New York and London. She continued as a specialist in European Furniture and Decorative arts at Christie’s auction house in New York before co-founding an international consulting firm, Meridienne LLC. She has lectured both at Christie’s and Sotheby’s and taught at the graduate program for the Study of Decorative Arts, the Cooper-Hewitt Museum, and New School.
Schlesinger previously served as the Art Curator of The Surrey Hotel where she conceived and curated three successful exhibitions connecting The Surrey’s own permanent art collection to the most relevant themes in contemporary art today. Most recently, she curated a group exhibition titled “The Ideal Feminine/The Feminine Ideal?” at Winston Wachter Fine Art gallery in Chelsea that featured multi-media works by 12 artists. She also curates the charity auction for the Baryshnikov Arts Center benefit annually.
Schlesinger holds a Master’s degree in Decorative Arts and Design from the Bard Graduate Center for Studies in the Decorative Arts, Culture and Design. In 2005, Schlesinger received the Future Leaders of the Art World award from ArtTable, a national nonprofit membership organization for professional women in leadership positions in the visual arts. In 2017, she launched the Discover Galleries app to bring collectors and galleries together through a unique technology platform offering advice and consultation services.
Schlesinger speaks regularly at leading industry events, and is available for select panel and keynote engagements.
