He is a fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of London as well as the Text and Academic Authors Association.

Dr. Kleiner earned his Ph.D. from Columbia University.Review:
"I have taught Survey of Art using Gardner since 1974. The Kleiner versions are masterpieces."
"I find ART THROUGH THE AGES to be head and shoulders above other survey texts in terms of its contextual treatment of the objects. Fred Kleiner's interest in explaining how and why objects functioned within their social, religious, political and funerary contexts effectively opens the door for further learning in the classroom."
