From the museum website
Gregor Weber studied art history at universities in Cologne, Aachen and Utrecht. In his capacity as head of the Gemäldegalerie Alte Meister museum of Old Masters in Kassel, he began organising various exhibitions in 2004 on 16th to 18th century Dutch painting, including three about Rembrandt. Before this, Weber served for ten years as curator of Italian painting at the Gemäldegalerie Alte Meister museum of Old Masters in Dresden. Starting in 1995, he worked as a lecturer at various institutions, including the University of Bamberg, which appointed him ‘honorary professor’ in 2005. His academic publications take a broad approach and address the art theory, iconography and stylistic analyses of art originating from the areas to the north and south of the Alps. In employing Weber, the Rijksmuseum has gained an authoritative figure in the field of 17th century painting. He will begin work on 1 April.
