Postgraduate conservation associate
Yale Center for British Art

12 month appointment

The Yale Center for British Art invites applications for a 12 month
postgraduate conservation associate in painting conservation
beginning in early 2014.  The successful candidate will be asked to
study and treat a selection of works belonging to a collection of
paintings bequeathed to Yale by the Libra Foundation, from the
family of Nicholas and Susan Pritzker.  The majority of paintings
are late mid-twentieth century works by British artists working in a
domestic setting.  Among those represented in the collection are
Gwen John, Vanessa Bell, Roger Fry, Duncan Grant, Henry Islander,
John Minton, Keith Vaughan, Carol Wight, and Pamela Clough.
Treatment problems range from superficial cleanings, minor
consolidations to a few more complex cleanings and structural
repairs.  The opportunity for research is presented by the variety
of surface finishes and varnishes on this twentieth century

The work will be carried out in the painting conservation studio of
the Yale Center for British Art, New Haven, CT.  Candidates must
have advanced degree in Conservation, or have equivalent experience,
and be legally entitled to work in the United States.  Preference
will be given to applicants applying within three years of the award
of their degree.
