Pia Gottschaller came to the Getty Conservation Institute (GCI) in 2015 from the Tate, London, and has held research fellowships at Bibliotheca Hertziana, Max-Planck-Institut für Kunstgeschichte, Rome, and the Courtauld Institute of Art, London. She has a BA in art history from Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität, Munich, a diploma in painting conservation from the Courtauld Institute of Art, and a PhD from Technische Universität München. Her research has focused on issues of technical art history on postwar artists.
