Dr. Frederica Van Dam

Curator of Old Masters

Frederica Van Dam studied Art History at Ghent University and has been the curator of Old Masters at the Museum of Fine Arts Ghent (MSK) since 2017. She co-curated the widely acclaimed 2020 exhibition ‘Van Eyck. An Optical Revolution’. She is currently developing the first monographic exhibition to feature the Flemish Caravaggist Theodoor Rombouts (1597-1637), along with an accompanying book (2023).

Frederica’s doctoral research concerned Flemish painters in England in the Early Modern period, and she has published a book on a painter and poet from Ghent, Lucas d’Heere (1534-1584) during his time in England. The focus of her expertise is Early Modern painting (1500-1620), specifically Anglo-Flemish portraiture, technical art history, connoisseurship and Southern Netherlandish Humanism in the Renaissance.
