Samuel H. Kress Fellowship in Paper Conservation
Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO)
Toronto, Canada

The Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) is pleased to offer a Samuel H.
Kress Fellowship in paper conservation for a one-year appointment
beginning October, 2013.

In 2010 and 2012, the AGO received a remarkable donation of posters
and related materials from Ross R. Scott and Donald R. Muller. The
collection consists of nineteen posters by Henri de
Toulouse-Lautrec, twenty-four rare Lautrec prints, and other works
by Theophile Steinlen and their circle of late 19th century French
artists. The Fellow will undertake a survey of the collection and
work in collaboration with an interdisciplinary team on research,
assessment, documentation, and development of treatment protocols.
Preparation of the collection for exhibition, including treatment
and design of temporary and permanent storage methods will form an
integral part of the project. The Fellow will work closely with the
AGO paper conservator, collections care specialists, curators, as
well as a broader exhibition team, including collections management
and design staff. In conjunction with social media and web design
staff, the Fellow will be expected to produce conservation content
from the project for the AGO website and blog. Collaboration with
other institutions will be encouraged. A professional conference
presentation or publishable paper on some aspect of the project will
be expected.

The Samuel H. Kress Fellowship provides a stipend of $27,000. The
successful candidate will have recently completed a master's degree
at a recognized conservation training program in the United States
or Canada prior to beginning the fellowship.

Applicants must be Canadian citizens or be eligible for a work
