Alexander Röstel studied History of Art
at the University of Cambridge and the Courtauld Institute of Art, having
specialised in Italian art and architecture between 1300 and 1700. He received
the Director's Prize for his MA Dissertation on the reconstruction of the
Florentine church of San Paolino. His recent and forthcoming publications, based
on extensive archival research, cover a broad range of media. His recently
completed PhD Thesis, funded by the Arts & Humanities Research Council and supervised
by Dr. Scott Nethersole at The Courtauld Institute of Art, explored artistic
patronage networks in late fifteenth-century Florence.
From 2012 to 2017, in addition to his academic background, he worked with Dr. Andreas Schumacher in the Department of Italian Paintings at the Bavarian State Collections, where he contributed not only to the Catalogue Raisonné of Florentine Paintings, funded by the DFG and Ernst von Siemens Kunststiftung, but also to the subsequent exhibiton 'Florence and its Painters: from Giotto to Leonardo da Vinci'. From 2017 to 2019, he served as the Simon Sainsbury Curatorial Fellow at the National Gallery in London, working with Dr. Caroline Campbell on the 'Mantegna and Bellini' exhibition and involved with the reorganisation of the Italian, German and Early Netherlandish Paintings in the Sainsbury Wing.
