Fellowship at Walters Art Museum

From: Eric Gordon <egordon<-at->
Date: Friday, May 10, 2013
Samuel H. Kress Fellowship in Painting Conservation
The Walters Art Museum

1-year position

The Walters Art Museum is offering a rare opportunity to a recent
graduate in paintings conservation to develop research and treatment
skills on artworks from two distinct time periods and cultures:
Italian Renaissance panels and nineteenth century Thai paintings.
The fellowship is funded by the Samuel H. Kress Foundation,
administered by the Foundation of the American Institute for
Conservation. The Fellow will undertake an in-depth examination of a
large 15th century panel and treatment of a second panel from the
same series of spallieri. Additionally, the fellow will examine and
treat selected nineteenth century Thai paintings, helping to develop
a protocol to stabilize flaking paint. The Fellow will be an
important part of a team working on both projects along with the
Walters painting conservators. The position is for one year,
full-time, beginning September 3, 2013 and includes an attractive
benefits package.  Candidates should be graduates of a recognized
conservation training program in the USA or Canada or a US citizen
from a graduate-level conservation program abroad.

Please submit a cover letter stating your interest in the project, a
resume and two references to jobs<-at->thewalters<.>org by May 24, 2013.
