Biography:

Amy Herman is a lawyer and art historian who uses works of art to systematically sharpen observation, analysis, and communication skills. By showing people how to look closely at painting, sculpture, photography, she helps them hone their visual intelligence to recognize the most pertinent and useful information.

She developed her Art of Perception seminar in 2000 to improve medical students’ observation and communication skills with their patients when she was the Head of Education at The Frick Collection in New York City. She subsequently adapted the program for a wide range of professionals from the New York City Police Department, the FBI, the Department of Defense, the State Department, Fortune 500 companies, first responders, the military and the intelligence community.

She presents the relevance of visual literacy across the professional spectrum and demonstrates how the analysis of works of art has afforded the participants in her program an innovative way to refresh their sense of critical inquiry and reconsider the skills necessary for improved performance and effective leadership. The program has been featured in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The CBS Evening News, and Smithsonian Magazine, among others.

Ms. Herman holds an A.B., a J.D., and an M.A. in art history. Her book, Visual Intelligence, was published in May 2016 and was on the New York Times and Washington Post best sellers’ lists.
