As of today, Tom van der Molen takes over from Gary Schwartz as webmaster of the CODART website. Van der Molen completed his studies in art history at the University of Amsterdam in August 2006. Since 2007 he has been working part-time for the Amsterdams Historisch Museum on its catalogue of Old Master paintings. He has considerable experience in website management for other organizations. He began working for CODART in mid-November 2008, in training for the position of website manager.
Until 31 March 2009, Gary Schwartz will continue to work on the website with van der Molen, in order to assure that the transition runs smoothly. Following that date, CODART hopes to benefit from Schwartz’s background and experience in a new website project for which financing is being sought by CODART and the RKD. As honorary member of CODART, with his wife Loekie Schwartz, Gary will remain a lifelong member of the organization, with access to all its events, which he plans to continue attending.
