Ernst Barlach Die Gemeinschaft der Heiligen


An art historian, I specialise in the history of sculpture, architecture and dance of the early 20th century in Europe. I am the author of a book (for Kunsthal Rotterdam) and catalogue entries (for the Centre Pompidou, Musée d’art Moderne de Paris) on André Derain‘s sculpture. I have published a number of articles on the subject of early 20th-century architectural sculpture, sculptural patronage, art dealership and artistic identity.

I am the director/editor of the Moissey Kogan Catalogue Raisonné of Sculpture & Prints and Project Archive.

My doctoral work at the Courtauld Institute of Art concerns the patronage of architectural sculpture in Germany, 1895-1933. My MA (Birmingham Institute of Art and Design) focused on the oeuvre of the avant-garde sculptor and print-maker, Moissey Kogan, a member of the École de Paris, and the radical conservatism of a number of his German patrons.

I am a member of the Catalogue Raisonné Scholars Association, the Arbeitskreis Werkverzeichnis and the Public Monuments and Sculpture Association.
