Appointment of the Enriqueta Harris Frankfort Curatorial Assistant.

The Wallace Collection and the Centro de Estudios Europa Hispánica (CEEH) announce the appointment of the Enriqueta Harris Frankfort Curatorial Assistant.

In association with the Centro de Estudios Europa Hispánica (CEEH), the Wallace Collection is delighted to announce the appointment of Isabelle Kent to the post of Enriqueta Harris Frankfort Curatorial Assistant.

Before her death in 2006, Dr Frankfort Harris was a leading authority on Spanish painting in the UK, particularly the works of Velázquez and Goya. One of her most notable contributions to the field was her research into the historical context of Velázquez’s painting, Prince Baltasar Carlos in the Riding School, a version of which hangs in the Wallace Collection. It is therefore extremely fitting that we commemorate her achievements with this position, which will research and investigate the Collection’s group of Spanish paintings.

Isabelle Kent studied History of Art at Trinity College, Cambridge, with a particular focus on Spanish art. She also possesses extensive museum experience, having undertaken internships at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (New York), Dulwich Picture Gallery, British Library and Victoria & Albert Museum. During her undergraduate studies she was President of the Fitzwilliam Museum  Society.

The Wallace Collection is proud to be collaborating with the Centro de Estudios Europa Hispánica (CEEH) in the appointment of this role, and is extremely grateful for their on-going support.
