Vincent Droguet Appointed Director of Heritage and the Collections at the Château de Fontainebleau

31/12/13 - Appointment - Fontainebleau, château - Following the departure of Xavier Salmon for the Département des Arts Graphiques at the Musée du Louvre (see news item of 17/6/13), his successor as director of heritage and collections at the château in Fontainebleau was recently appointed. Vincent Droguet, Conservateur général du patrimoine, will feel right at home at Fontainebleau as he has been working there since 1995, first as Conservateur, then Conservateur en chef.

Born in 1959, Vincent Droguet began his career as a curator in Orleans at the Inventaire where he worked from 1984 to 1995. Since then he has specialized in the château at Fontainebleau, notably its Renaissance paintings and décors. Thus, we could not have wished for a better choice. In fact, we have already said on this site how much we liked the last two exhibitions under his curatorship : last year (along with Thierry Crépin-Leblond) "Le roi et l’artiste. François Ier et Rosso Fiorentino" and in 2011 "Henri IV à Fontainebleau. Un temps de splendeur".
Besides his many publications on the collections which he will now be directing, Vincent Droguet teaches at the Ecole du Louvre and is a member of various scholarly commissions.
