Enriqueta Harris Frankfort Curatorial Assistant

Closing date for Applications: Tuesday, May 30th, 2017

The Wallace Collection is delighted to announce the creation of a new two-year position combining museum experience and Spanish art-historical studies in memory of Enriqueta Frankfort Harris. 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.  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.

This post is intended to strengthen the curatorial team and specifically its research activities in the field of Spanish painting, but also to provide a professional start in the career of someone intending to make a career in curatorship. It is envisaged as a training opportunity for someone with little experience of museum work but with a formal academic training, and is designed to encourage an early-stage researcher to engage with museum objects and produce new research.
