The Cincinnati Art Museum is seeking a Kress Foundation fellow in
paintings conservation to examine and treat an important painting
attributed to Alonso Cano, a contemporary of Francisco Zurbaran and
Diego Velazquez in 17th century Seville.  Closely related to works

Cincinnati's St. John the Baptist will provide an opportunity to

successful applicant will be under the supervision of the Chief
Conservator/Paintings Conservator.  The period of the fellowship is
6-8-5 months.  The start date is negotiable.

The preferred candidate will possess practical treatment experience,
a willingness to learn, good organizational skills, and a solid
understanding of the field of conservation including current ethical
and philosophical approaches.

To apply, please send a letter of interest along with curriculum
vitae. Please include the contact information for three conservation
and/or museum professionals familiar with your work, and a brief
list of paintings treatments undertaken. The application deadline is
