Coll & Cortés Fine Arts, dealers in Hispanic, Latin American and Italian art, are offering internship opportunities at their London offices. These internships are unpaid, but interns will have opportunities to gain valuable experience with major London dealers, with picture research likely to be a significant part of the role.
Internships will be offered on a competitive basis. Applicants are expected to hold a degree in Art History (or be in their final year of a BA) and will need at least a reading knowledge of Spanish. Internships are offered throughout the year (except July and August), for a minimum of 4 consecutive weeks. Coll and Cortés regrets that it cannot assist in funding transport or accommodation costs for interns.
Applications should be sent to CollCortesinternships@gmail.com by 2nd April 2015. Applicants should not expect notice of receipt; successful candidates will normally be notified by the end of May. Applications should include the following:
1) a covering letter (max 2 pages), including a description of suitability and dates of availability over the next 12 months; and a CV (max 2 pages), emphasising educational or professional experience of particular relevance. These should be sent in a single MS Word document. Applicants are strongly encouraged to research on the Coll and Cortés website in order to tailor their application, paying particular attention to Coll and Cortés’ highly respected catalogues.
2) An academic or professional reference, sent directly to CollCortesinternships@gmail.com by the referee.
Please note that ARTES assists only in recruiting candidates for these internships and accepts no legal responsibility to any applicant or third party arising from this notice, or the award or otherwise of a internship. Coll & Cortés and ARTES reserve the right to make no awards in cases where they deem that applications are not of satisfactory quality. Coll & Cortés and ARTES will not enter into correspondence with unsuccessful applicants or their academic advisors regarding its decisions.
