    Docteur en histoire de l'art contemporain, (thèse soutenue en 1998), Claire Barbillon a été responsable du secteur des publications au musée d'Orsay de 1991 à 1998, pensionnaire à l'Institut national d'histoire de l'art de 1999 à 2001, puis maître de conférences à l'université de Bordeaux III - Michel de Montaigne. Elle est actuellement maître de conférences à l'université de Paris Ouest – La Défense et directrice des études de l'Ecole du Louvre.

    Elle a édité la correspondance du sculpteur A. Préault (Gallimard/ RMN 1997), réalisé une édition critique de la Grammaire des Arts du dessin de Charles Blanc (éditions de l'ENSBA, 2000), publié un commentaire des lettres illustrées de Van Gogh en 2003 aux éditions Textuel, qui ont également fait paraître son entretien avec Roland Recht/ A quoi sert l'histoire de l'art ?/ en 2006. Son principal ouvrage, /Les Canons du corps humain au XIXe siècle, l'Art et la règle,/ est paru aux éditions Odile Jacob en 2004. Elle a complété l'étude de la place du canon de proportions dans les théories d'art sacré par une contribution à une exposition allemande : « Die Schule von Beuron und die Nabis :
    spirituelle Gemeinsamkeiten, theoretische Übereinstimmungen », dans Avangardist Malermönch, Peter Lenz und die Beuroner Kunstschule, catalogue de l'exposition d'Engen, 31 mars-1er juillet 2007, Hildesheim, By Quensen, 2007.

    Elle a par ailleurs longuement collaboré à la publication électronique d'une base de données,/ A nos grands hommes/, consacrée à la statuaire publique aux XIXe et XXe siècles (Projet associé Musée d'Orsay / INHA, publication 2004).

    Ses travaux de recherche actuels portent sur deux domaines, l'histoire de la sculpture au XIXe siècle et l'histoire de l'histoire de l'art.
    Dans le premier domaine, elle s'intéresse particulièrement au relief sculpté, auquel elle a consacré récemment plusieurs articles.

    Dans une perspective historiographique, elle a récemment publié, avec Roland Recht, Philippe Sénéchal et François-René Martin le volume /Histoire de l'histoire de l'art en France au XIXe siècle/, actes du colloque tenu en juin 2004, co-organisé par le Collège de France et l'Institut national d'histoire de l'art, Paris, La Documentation française, 2008. Elle a approfondi certaines études prosopographiques, par exemple celle de « Georges Lafenestre, un historien de l'art « exemplaire » du XIXe siècle français ».
