JMW Turner’s Twickenham villa, Sandycombe Lodge, was the artist’s country retreat from 1813 to 1826. The painter, who originally trained as an architect, designed the house for himself and his father and, although subject to later alteration, it remains the only surviving property in England designed by a major artist for his own use - a truly three-dimensional work by Turner.

He/she will contribute, in particular for the technical entries, to the making of the Catalogues of the Rijksmuseum. Candidates should have hands-on familiarity with the common methods and techniques for the material examination of art objects, such as IR-reflectography, X-radiography, conventional ‘wet’ microchemistry, light-, and electron microscopy, diffraction, spectrometry, and chromatography. He/she should be capable of valuating the outcomes of these methods in the interpretation of art historical questions.
