The Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen in Rotterdam appointed English art historian Rosie Razzall as the museum’s new Curator of Drawings, effective 24 January 2022. She succeeds Dr. Albert J. Elen, who retired as Senior Curator of Drawings and Prints last November.

Rosie Razzall (b. 1986) studied Art History at the University of Oxford and at the Courtauld Institute in London. Since 2012, she has been Curator of Prints and Drawings with the Royal Collection Trust, at Windsor Castle. Together with Lucy Whitaker, formerly Senior Curator of Paintings at the Royal Collection Trust, she curated the 2017 Canaletto and the Art of Venice exhibition, which was shown in London, Edinburgh and Dublin, and is co-author of the accompanying catalogue. She was awarded the second annual Ricciardi Prize (2020) with a winning essay, published in the journal Master Drawings

Razzall’s work so far has focused mainly on the connections between British art and that of continental Europe. Due to her move to Boijmans, with its rich collection of Dutch and Flemish art, the cultural relationship between Britain and the Netherlands is expected to receive special attention.
