The Curatorial Fellowship Program at the Harvard Art Museums is designed to broaden the experience of scholars embarking on professional and academic careers in art history who are considering the museum profession.
The Rousseau Curatorial Fellow will share fully in a range of curatorial activities pertaining to the collection of European Art including acquisitions, research and documentation of the permanent collection, preparation of interpretive materials, answering scholarly inquiries and correspondence, donor cultivation and speaking publicly about the collection for visitors and students. Because of the areas of strength of the collection, the curatorial fellow will undertake a collections-related project, under the supervision of the Margaret S. Winthrop Curator of European Art, in either Dutch seventeenth-century painting and sculpture, or French nineteenth-century art. Under the supervision of the Margaret S. Winthrop Curator of European Art, the fellow will also undertake research on an upcoming exhibition on the development and significance of color in eighteenth-century art. Foregrounding the museum’s teaching and research mission, the Curatorial Fellow helps provide content expertise for the Art Museums’ Art Study Center by supporting classes and individual appointments six hours a week, and contributes to a rich offering of public and academic interpretive programs across various platforms. The Fellow may supervise students and temporary employees.
