Graduate programs in Fine and Decorative Art from Sotheby's Institute

The Master’s degree in Fine and Decorative Art and Design derives from the oldest program at Sotheby's Institute of Art, which started in 1969. It offers an integrated study of fine and decorative art and design based on case studies drawn from the late Renaissance through to the latetwentieth century. These studies are used as lenses through which to examine the production and materiality of art objects, and to consider aspects of consumption, including patronage and collecting and the historical and contemporary art market. Sotheby's Institute of Art in London is accredited by The University of Manchester, and offers world-class education across a variety of art world disciplines. 15-week Semester courses in Decorative Arts and Design also offered at the London campus.

2 Year Fixed-Term Contract

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.

For further details, applicants are advised to consult the
Wallace Collection website or contact the HR department at
the Wallace Collection.

Application deadline: 15 September 2021
