Johnson curator of European paintings at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and a curator at The Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Her exhibition “Recognizing van Eyck,” was named Best Exhibition of 1998 by Artforum. She was a Fulbright Scholar in residence at the Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna, Austria. She also authored Albrecht Dürer and the Venetian Renaissance, published in 2005.

Luber received a PhD from Bryn Mawr College, an MA from University of Texas, and a BA from Yale University, all in art history. She also received an MBA from Johns Hopkins University.
