Eine englische Privatsammlung zur Kunst der Goethezeit at the Klassik Stiftung Weimar in 2013; and German Romantic prints and drawings from an English private collection at the British Museum in 2011. He earlier collaborated on a number of exhibitions of Renaissance drawings in the British Museum, including Fra Angelico to Leonardo: Italian Renaissance Drawings (2010) and Closer to the Master. Michelangelo Drawings (2005). He gives regular talks and guides to art, including a lecture course on German Romanticism in 2016, and a talk on the nineteenth-century rediscovery of Botticelli, given at the Berlin Gemäldegalerie’s Botticelli Renaissance exhibition in 2015. Among his most recent publications is a piece in last June’s The Art Newspaper on Michelangelo’s bronzes. He also works as an editor and translator of art historical texts from Italian and German.
