New Curatorial Head at National Gallery

May 30 2013

Many congratulations to Letizia Treves, who is the new Curator of Italian Painting 1600-1800, and indeed Head of the Curatorial Department. Letizia was previously a Senior Director of the Old Master Department at Sotheby's in London. Such high profile moves from the art trade to the museum world are rare, but greatly to be encouraged. It's a pleasing recognition, perhaps, that some of the best Old Master expertise is to be found in the art trade.
