CODART, Dutch and Flemish art in museums worldwide

Interpretive Fellowship at the Bruce Museum, Greenwich

Information from the museum, 10 April 2014

The Bruce Museum ( promotes the understanding and appreciation of Art and Science to enrich the lives of all people. The Museum is located in Greenwich, Connecticut, 40 miles east of New York City, just off I-95 and steps away from Metro-North Railroad’s Greenwich station.

The Bruce Museum Interpretive Fellowship provides an opportunity to develop educational programming for a major international traveling exhibition that will be presented in over six months, Northern Baroque Splendor: The Hohenbuchau Collection from the Liechtenstein Museum, Vienna. The Bruce Museum’s Executive Director, Dr. Peter C. Sutton, is the Curator of the exhibition and author of a 500-page, catalogue entitled The Hohenbuchau Collection: Dutch and Flemish Paintings from the Golden Age (2011). The Hohenbuchau Collection is remarkable for offering examples of virtually all the genres produced by Netherlandish/Old Masters – history painting, portraiture, landscapes, seascapes, still life, animal painting and hunting scenes – as well as rich diversity of size, format, and subject within each genre. Unique to the collection are the number of individual paintings executed by more than one artist, working in tandem.
Given the extent and richness of this exhibition, the Bruce Museum seeks a scholar/educator whose goal is to work collaboratively with curatorial and education departments to develop creative and enriching interpretive educational programming that reaches students in regional high schools and post-secondary institutions.
