The curator supervises an assistant curator of Manuscripts and Rare Books, who oversees the Walters' collection of over 900 illuminated manuscripts, 1,200 early printed books and over 1,300 rare books. The curator demonstrates and fosters scholarly expertise in the field of medieval art, in alignment with the mission and vision of the Walters Art Museum, through a focus on deepening and sharing knowledge of the museum’s collections, and by participating in and promoting the research culture of the museum.
