NEW HEAD OF THE DEPARTMENT OF PRINTS AND DRAWINGS TO 1800 AT THE STÄDEL MUSEUM
DR. ASTRID REUTER TO COME TO FRANKFURT FROM THE STAATLICHE KUNSTHALLE KARLSRUHE ON 1 NOVEMBER 2022
The Städel Museum has a new head of its Department of Prints and Drawings to 1800. The art historian Dr. Astrid Reuter will come to Frankfurt from Karlsruhe on 1 November 2022. Dr. Reuter’s research expertise lies primarily in the area of French and German drawing and printmaking from the fifteenth to the nineteenth century. Further focusses of her work are women artists and the history of collections as well as media history. Dr. Reuter is the author of numerous publications and scholarly articles. She will succeed Dr. Martin Sonnabend, who will retire as co-head of the Department of Prints and Drawings at the end of September.
“The Städel Museum’s Department of Prints and Drawings has superb old master holdings at its disposal. We are very fortunate that Astrid Reuter will soon join us as the new co-head of the collection. In this position she will oversee the scholarly research into the holdings as well as their audience-oriented presentation. In Astrid Reuter, the Städel Museum is gaining an extremely experienced art historian whose museum and exhibition practice goes back more than two decades. I greatly look forward to welcoming her to the Städel Museum on 1 November”, says Städel Museum director Philipp Demandt about the new addition to the staff.
