Kress Institutional Fellowships in the History of European Art

October 15, 2012

WHO:

Restricted to pre-doctoral candidates in the history of art and related disciplines (such as archaeology, architecture, or classics). Nominees must be U.S. citizens or individuals matriculated at an American university. Dissertation research must focus on European art from antiquity to the early 19th century. Candidates must be nominated by their academic department.

WHAT:

Advanced training in European art history requires direct exposure to the object of study, prolonged access to key information resources such as libraries and photographic archives, the development of professional relationships with colleagues, and immersion in European cultures. These related needs are often best satisfied by prolonged engagement with a European art research center. The Kress History of Art: Institutional Fellowships are intended to provide promising young professionals with the opportunity to experience this kind of engagement.

Six Kress Institutional Fellowships in the History of European Art will be awarded each year for a two-year research appointment hosted with one of the following (six) European research centers:

  • Florence Kunsthistorisches Institut / Institute for Art History
  • Leiden Kunsthistorisch Instituut der Rijksuniversiteit / Art Historical Institute, Rijksuniversiteit
  • London Courtauld Institute of Art & Warburg Institute of Art (jointly administered)
  • Munich Zentralinstitut für Kunstgeschichte / Central Institute for Art History
  • Paris Institut national d’histoire de l’art (INHA) / National Institute for the History of Art
  • Rome Bibliotheca Hertziana

The fellowship award is $30,000 per annum.

WHEN:

Applications must be received by November 30.
