Center for the History of Collecting, The Frick Collection
Post-doc researcher
I have received my PhD at the University of Florence, Pisa, and Siena and currently I am a post-doc researcher at the Center fort the History of Collecting at the Frick Collection in NY, with a project on the Gordon Onslow Ford’s collection. My work addresses topics at the crossway of collecting, the art market, cultural dissemination, and transnational exchanges related to Surrealism, avant-gardes and modernity. I have recently turned my PhD research into a book titled “Collecting and the Art Market: the London Gallery and the dissemination of Surrealism (1938-1950)” ( Firenze, Pontecorboli, 2018).
