"My best experience during the time of my doctorate was a tour of all the large and small storerooms, restoration workshops, and a number of secret side corridors at the National Gallery London, during which I was able to study in depth all the relevant material."
"My topic still concerns me today, because I still like to critically discuss it with students and my colleagues."
"A particular help to me at the time was that the Foundation showed such great confidence and interest in my research."
"At the Pinacoteca di Brera in Milan the restorers spontaneously invited me into the glass workshops in the middle of the exhibition halls, where I was able to view unframed altarpieces and learn a great deal about the fascinating work on them. An extraordinary, completely unexpected and one-off experience."
