The Samuel H. Kress Conservation Fellow
Royal Cabinet of Paintings, Mauritshuis

The Samuel H. Kress Foundation and the Royal Cabinet of Paintings
Mauritshuis would like to offer a one-year fellowship in the
research and treatment of paintings from the Dutch Golden Age
starting September 2003.

The Royal Cabinet of Paintings Mauritshuis has a long tradition in
the conservation, restoration and technical research of paintings.
The Paintings Conservation department at the Mauritshuis has a
commitment to providing advanced training opportunities. Together
with the Kress Foundation the Mauritshuis is now able to offer
recent American graduates in Conservation the opportunity to further
develop their experience at the Mauritshuis. With its core
collection of important paintings from the Dutch Golden Age, the
Mauritshuis is valued as one of the most highly regarded collections
of old master paintings.

The purpose of the Kress Conservation Fellowship is to provide
advanced training and research opportunities in paintings
conservation. The recipient will work in the conservation studio of
the museum in close collaboration with the conservation staff.
During the fellowship period we anticipate that research will not
only include paintings from the Mauritshuis collection but that the
successful applicant would use travel money to examine pictures that
relate to the area of research in other Dutch and/or European

Besides working with conservators at the Mauritshuis the applicant
will have the possibility to work with the scientists at the Dutch
Institute for Cultural Heritage (ICN) as well as the Institute for
Physics and Molecular Chemistry (FOM/AMOLF). We feel that the
opportunity to work with these scientists would be an integral part
of the fellowship experience.

Application is open to American recent graduates of a conservation
training programs. The Samuel H. Kress Conservation Fellowship will
be awarded for a period of one year.

The application must include a cover letter stating the candidate's
interests and intentions in applying for the Samuel H. Kress
Conservation Fellowship at the Mauritshuis, curriculum vitae and two
