Riesener Project Coordinator
Closing date: 3 September 2018
The Riesener Research Project investigates the work of Jean-Henri Riesener (1734-1806), one of the most celebrated cabinet-makers of the eighteenth century. As accredited supplier to the French Court, his workshop delivered more than 700 pieces of furniture to the royal Garde-Meuble alone over the course of ten years. Exquisitely designed and ingeniously constructed, his creations were at the height of fashion during the late Ancien Régime and furnished many royal and aristocratic houses. He was particularly favoured by Queen Marie Antoinette. The Riesener Project is a collaboration between The Wallace Collection, the Royal Collection Trust and Waddesdon Manor and it is intended that it will culminate in a print publication, a digital outcome and an exhibition at The Wallace Collection in 2020.
The Wallace Collection has obtained a Leverhulme Trust Research Project Grant to support this exciting project. A Project Coordinator is required to assist with the analysis and interpretation of the object-based scientific and technical findings and to help the small team bring the investigative work from the three collections together. This post will provide an excellent opportunity for an early-stage researcher to work with an outstanding collection of objects.
