Samuel H. Kress Paired Fellowships for Research in
Conservation and Art History/Archaeology
Academic Year 1997-1998

The Center for Advanced Study in the Visual Arts, National Gallery
of Art, announces a program for the Samuel H. Kress Paired
Fellowships for Research in Conservation and Art
History/Archaeology. Applications are invited from teams consisting
of two scholars: one in the field of art history, archaeology, or
another related discipline in the humanities or social sciences, and
one in the field of conservation or materials science. The
fellowship includes a two-month period for field, collections,
and/or laboratory research, followed by a two-month residency period
at the Center for Advanced Study, National Gallery of Art.

This fellowship is supported by funds from the Samuel H. Kress
Foundation. Applications will be considered for study in the history
and conservation of the visual arts (painting, sculpture,
architecture, landscape architecture, urbanism, graphics, film,
photography, decorative arts, industrial design, and other arts) of
any geographical area and of any period. A focus on National Gallery
collections is not required. These fellowships are open to those who
have held the appropriate terminal degree for five years or more and
who possess a record of professional accomplishment at the time of
application. Awards will be made without regard to the age or
nationality of the applicants.

Each team is required to submit an application for the Samuel H.
Kress Paired Fellowship. Five sets of all materials, including
application form, proposal, a tentative schedule of travel
indicating the site(s), collection(s), or institution(s) most
valuable for the proposed research project, and copies of selected
pertinent publications must be forwarded by the application
deadline. In addition, each team member must ask two individuals to
write letters of recommendation in support of the application.

Applications are due by 21 March 1997. For information and
application forms, write to the
