Congratulations to former Warburg PhD student Dr Genevieve Kristl Verdigel, who is awarded this year’s Wolfgang Ratjen Award.
She was awarded the prize for her dissertation Bartolomeo & Benedetto Montagna and the Role of the Graphic Arts in Vicenza, c.1480–1520.
The Wolfgang Ratjen Award is an annual award for early career research in the field of graphic arts. The prize, funded by the Foundation Wolfgang Ratjen, is curated and presented by Conivncta Florescit Friends of the Zentralinstitut für Kunstgeschichte.
The purpose of this award, which honours the memory of the collector Wolfgang Ratjen (1943-1997), is to encourage younger scholars to address neglected topics and to bring the results of their work to the attention of a broader public.
