When the Museum's director, Perry Rathbone (q.v.) was relieved of his duties during the 1970 centennial celebration because of the acquisition of a stolen Raphael, Vermeule assumed the acting directorship. It was during his time as director that the Museum purchased an important work, Cézanne's last self-portrait. For the 1973-1974 academic year Vermeule was a visiting faculty at Yale University. In 1978 he received an appointment at Boston College. Vermeule's tenure as curator was marked by the acquisition of two large vases portraying the fall of Troy and the death of Agamemnon, a Roman portrait of an old man, and a Minoan gold double ax. He retired in 1996 and was succeeded by John Herrmann. (English)
