David Scrase 1949-2020

David Scrase

The Trust announces with great sadness the death of David Scrase, Cosman Keller Trustee since 2016. David joined us after his retirement from the Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge, where he was for many years Keeper of Paintings, Drawings and Prints and then Assistant Director of Collections, amassing an unsurpassed knowledge of the collections and directing a remarkable period of acquisitions for the museum.

We are grateful for his deep understanding of drawing and profound knowledge of the history and making of art — and to have had the wonderful company of such a generous, charming and witty friend and colleague.
