About the guide:
Tosca Ruggieri was born and raised near Reims, a city in northeastern France and has spent a significant portion of her time in Italy.
She graduated with a Master’s Degree in Art & Archaeology from the EPHE-Sorbonne in Paris in 2015. Her broad interests in art led her to conduct research on subjects such as Etruscan Jewelry and Decorative Arts in the Italian Renaissance. In London, Tosca obtained a Master’s Degree from King's College London.
After a career in the art markets of Paris and London, where she worked with auctions houses, art galleries and private collectors, Tosca reconnected with her passion for art through teaching art history.
Now based in Washington, D.C., Tosca offers cultural tours of the capital’s National Gallery of Art which boasts from an overflowing collection of masterpieces from the Italian Renaissance to Modern masters. On Art With Tosca, she also offers a program of online lectures on a wide array of art history subjects. Her objective is to inspire through different aesthetics in art history and to transport her audience and guests across centuries of art.
