Curator of Paintings (excl France)

Closing date for Applications: Friday, November 28th, 2014

Full Time Maternity Cover (9 months)

The post holder will be Acting Co-Curator of the major international loan exhibition ‘Joshua Reynolds: Experiments in Paint’ which will open on 12 March 2015 and close on 7 June 2015. This exhibition will present the results of a four-year research project on the Wallace Collection’s twelve paintings by Reynolds (the Reynolds Research Project), set up to investigate the artist’s materials and techniques. The purpose of the exhibition is to dramatise the experimental aspect of Reynolds’s workshop practice in ways which are both exciting and accessible to the visitor. The post holder will work closely with the two co-curators (one external, one internal) to install the exhibition and will report to the Director.

As part of a small curatorial team reporting to the Senior Curator, you will be responsible for the care of the Wallace Collection’s pictures up to 1800, including paintings, drawings and watercolours and miniatures, excluding French paintings and miniatures, which are curated by the Director.  You will be required to undertake research into your area of the collection and to develop the Wallace Collection’s reputation as a centre for excellence and scholarship, helping to promote understanding and enjoyment of this Collection and fostering and encouraging the study of Old Master paintings. You will also be expected to help promote the Wallace Collection’s status as an international museum.
