Mary Kisler is the senior curator, Mackelvie Collection, International Art, at the Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tamaki. Along with Dr Ludovica Sebregond, she has curated a new exhibition at the gallery called The Corsini Collection. Opening on September 2, the works are drawn from the extensive private art collection of the eminent Corsini family in Florence, Italy, and include  Renaissance and Baroque painting by artists such as Botticelli, Caravaggio, Andrea del Sarto and Pontormo. It is the first time this collection has toured outside Italy and the first time a Florentine private collection will be displayed in New Zealand.
