The Kress Foundation History of Art Institutional Fellowships
Advanced training in European art history requires direct exposure to the object of study, prolonged access to key information resources such as libraries and photographic archives, the development of professional relationships with colleagues abroad, and sustained immersion in European cultures. These related needs are often best satisfied by extended engagement with a European art research center. The Kress History of Art: Institutional Fellowships are intended to provide promising young art historians with the opportunity to experience just this kind of immersion.
Six (6) pre-doctoral Kress Institutional Fellowships in the History of European Art will be awarded each year.
