Kimberly A. Jones received her PhD from the University of Maryland in 1996. A former museum fellow at the Musée national du château de Pau and the Musée d'Orsay, Paris, she joined the curatorial staff of the National Gallery of Art in 1995.

Jones was a collaborator and catalogue coauthor for the exhibition Jean-Paul Laurens 1838–1921 peintre d'histoire on view at the Musée d'Orsay, and the Musée des Augustins, Toulouse (19971998). She has served as curator and catalogue author for a number of exhibitions at the National Gallery of Art, including Degas at the Races (1998); Edouard Vuillard, which was organized by the National Gallery of Art, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, the Musée d'Orsay/Réunion des musées nationaux, Paris, and the Royal Academy of Arts, London (2003-2004); In the Forest of Fontainebleau: Painters and Photographers from Corot to Monet, which was organized in association with the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (2008); and From Impressionism to Modernism: The Chester Dale Collection (20102011). Most recently, she was the curator and principal catalogue author for Impressionist and Post-Impressionist Masterpieces from the National Gallery of Art, an exhibition that traveled to the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, the National Arts Center, Tokyo, and the Municipal Museum of Art, Kyoto (2011).

Jones has lectured and published articles on a number of topics related to French art of the 19th century and is currently overseeing the publication of the systematic catalogue of the Gallery’s collection of later 19th-century French paintings.
