The Samuel H. Kress Foundation
|Category: Arts & Culture
The Foundation supports projects that illuminate European works of art and architecture from antiquity to the early 19th century. The Foundationís Conservation grants program supports the professional practice of art conservation, including conservation research, scholarly publications, international conferences, and symposia, with a focus on European art of the pre-modern era. Grants are awarded to projects that create and disseminate specialized knowledge, including archival projects, development and dissemination of scholarly databases, documentation projects, exhibitions and publications focusing on art conservation, scholarly publications, and technical and scientific studies. Grants are also awarded for activities that permit conservator and conservation scientists to share their expertise with both professional colleagues and a broad audience. Support for conservation treatments is generally limited to works from the distributed Kress Collection, and is coordinated through the Kress Program in Paintings Conservation at the Conservation Center of the New York University Institute of Fine Arts.
