Advanced training in European art history requires direct exposure to the object of study, prolonged access to key information resources such as libraries and photographic archives, the development of professional relationships with colleagues, and immersion in European cultures. These related needs are often best satisfied by prolonged engagement with a European art research center. Kress Fellowships in Art History at Foreign Institutions are intended to provide promising young professionals with the opportunity to experience this kind of engagement.
