Biography: Geneviève Sennequier

Name: 
Geneviève Sennequier

The 1992 Rakow Grant for Glass Research was awarded to Geneviève Sennequier, curator at the Musée des Antiquités in Rouen, France.

The grant was used to complete a doctoral dissertation on the Gallo-Roman glass of the Nor­mandy region of France. Ms. Sennequier’s research was based on approximately 800 objects from cem­eteries and other archaeological sites in Normandy. The purpose of the project was to document the pro­duction and use of glass in this region throughout the Roman period.

Ms. Sennequier has published numerous papers on the glass of the Roman era, and is the author of a catalog of the Roman glass in the Musée des Antiquités in Rouen. With the recipient of a previ­ous Rakow Award, Danièle Foy, Ms. Sennequier co-curated “A travers le verre du Moyen-Age à la Renaissance,” the very successful 1989 exhibition of medieval glass in France.
