Friends of CODART

The Friends of CODART Foundation was established in 2007 to help forge enduring relationships between members of CODART and private individuals and businesses with a passion for Old Masters. The Friends of CODART has supported this international network of museum curators since 2007. Thanks to its friends, CODART can maintain its prize-winning website They also underwrite important international gatherings as well as grants that allow curators from financially challenged countries to be involved in the network.

We offer our friends contact with a unique global network of museum curators. Our network meetings offer the opportunity to become acquainted with curators from New York, Amsterdam and St. Petersburg; exchange thoughts with our members from Antwerp, Havana and Paris; and receive advice from our specialists from Bruges, Warsaw and Berlin. Naturally, our friends can count on the personal attention of CODART’s director, board and staff.
