A graduate from London University, Hugo Chapman (1963) first worked for a decade at Christie’s as specialist of Old Master Drawings. In 1995 he joined the British Museum.

He has been the curator of some major exhibitions, including Raphael from Urbino to Rome in 2004, Michelangelo Drawings: Closer to the Master in 2005, also shown at the Teylers Museum (Haarlem), and Italian Renaissance drawings from Fra Angelico to Leonardo in 2010, a joint project with the Uffizi (Florence), also the second venue in 2011.
