Previous positions in his career include curatorial posts in Philadelphia and Boston, heading the Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford, Connecticut, and Senior Director of Christie’s Old Master Paintings Department.  He was educated at Harvard and received a doctorate from Yale.  Dr. Sutton has written extensively on Northern Baroque paintings and drawings and organized many exhibitions of Dutch and Flemish art as well as French 19th and 20th Century painting.  In addition to surveys of Dutch genre and landscape painting, he has organized monographic       exhibitions of Pieter de Hooch (1998), Michiel Sweerts (2002), Jan van der Heyden (2006-07), and Alfred Sisley (2017).  His shows of Flemish Baroque painting include The Age of Rubens (1992) and Drawn by the Brush: Oil Sketches by Peter Paul Rubens (2004-05).  Dr. Sutton has also catalogued distinguished private collections, including those of Harold Samuel (1992), Baron Willem van Dedem (2002) and the Hohenbuchau collection (2011).  He is the author of the catalogue and organizer of the 2012 exhibition Drawings by Rembrandt, his Students and Circle from the Maida and George Abrams Collection.  He is on the Board of the American Friends of the Mauritshuis, the Scientific Committee of the Thyssen-Bornemisza Museum, Madrid, and the Art Advisory Committee of the King Baudowijn Foundation.     The Stoddard Art Lecture series was established in the fall of 2011 to enrich and broaden the community’s understanding and enjoyment of the visual arts in all its forms. The Stoddard Lecture  is unique in that it is endowed; once the fund reaches a certain point from contributions the series will operate in perpetuity. It is indeed a lasting gift, honoring lifelong learners, benefiting others and improving the Library.
