About the Expert:

Waldemar H. de Boer is a Dutch art historian, specialized in Italian Renaissance and Baroque art, Italian art literature and 19th and early 20th century art auctions.

During his first visit to Florence in 1996, Waldemar fell in love with this stunning city, covered with incredible art works. A couple of years later, he made the big decision to move to the Renaissance capital of the world, together with his wife.

Nowadays, he enjoys sharing his passion for Florence by offering art history courses. Next to that, he executes research projects and writing commissions with great profoundness, diligence and enthusiasm.
