Samuel H. Kress Fellowship in Painting Conservation

The Kress Program in Painting Conservation was established in 1989 to care for the approximately one thousand paintings in the dispersed Kress Collection, now principally located in eighteen public and private museums and twenty-three university study collections across the United States. The other, no less important, objective was to train young American conservators in the classical tradition of restoration of Old Master paintings long espoused by the Kress Foundation, which has generously funded the program.
