Works on Paper Specialist

The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (VMFA) is seeking a collaborative, detail-oriented and experienced Works on Paper Specialist to support a three-year project to catalog and digitize the Frank Raysor bequest of 7,655 works on paper.

Ideal candidates have experience handling and cataloging works on paper, art historical training in the history of European or American art, and a desire for hands-on experience working with an important collection of works on paper. The Raysor Collection encompasses works on paper made in Europe and North America from the late 15th through the 20th centuries. The collection is especially strong in 17th-century prints, including extensive holdings of the work of Wencelaus Hollar, and work associated with the Etching Revival.

This position is supported by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
