The Trustees of the Victoria and Albert Museum have appointed Professor Martin Roth to replace Sir Mark Jones who is leaving in June to become Master of St Cross College, Oxford. Professor Roth is currently Director General of the Dresden state art collections, and will take up his new role as Director of the V&A in September.
The museum cares for one of the greatest collections of medieval and renaissance painted glass in the world. Highlights of the collection can be seen in the Medieval and Renaissance galleries (see Vidimus 35) and in the Sacred Silver and Stained Glass galleries. The entire collection can be viewed on-line here.
