In memory of Jacoba Lugt-Klever (1888-1969), wife of the collector Frits Lugt and co-founder of the Fondation Custodia, the latter offers a two-year fellowship from 1 November 2023 for art historical research in collaboration with the RKD – the Netherlands Institute for Art History.
The research is to be related to the main collecting areas of the Fondation Custodia / Frits Lugt Collection, namely that of European drawings and prints (‘art on paper’), illustrated books from the sixteenth till late nineteenth centuries, plein air oil paintings and autographs.
The Fondation Custodia and the RKD have a vacant position from 1 November 2023 for a Jacoba Lugt-Klever Fellow. The fellowship is 36 hours per week. It is available for an experienced art historian, with a demonstrable specialization in ‘art on paper’. The fellowship will either enable you to support your own ongoing research, or to start a new project affiliated to one of the research areas of the Fondation Custodia and/or the RKD. Location is The Hague. The Jacoba Lugt-Klever Fellow is required to submit a publishable scholarly text after completion of the fellowship.
Deadline for applications: 15 August 2023.
