We would like to congratulate Daniel on the success of his appointment.


Estabished in 1815 as a civic foundation, the Städel is one of Germany's leading and best known art museums and widely renowned for its internationally acclaimed exhibitions programme. With more than 3,000 paintings, 600 sculptures, over 4,000 photographs and over 100,000 drawings and prints, the Städel collection provides a rich survey of 700 years of European art - spanning the Middle Ages, the Renaissance and the Baroque, Classical Modernism and art of the present.


Mr Zamani, who is expected to complete his PhD on French Surrealism in early 2015, also holds an MA in Curatorial Studies ("Diplôme de

muséologie") from the Ecole du Louvre in Paris. At the Städel, Mr Zamani will assist the curatorial team in the Department of Modern Art, including support of the final stages of preparation for its forthcoming exhibition on "Monet and the Birth of Impressionism" (11.3 - 21.6.2015).
