Can you write engagingly about paintings to a strict word-count and in a limited time?

If so, the National Gallery is seeking six authors to research and write short and long descriptions of its paintings, and short accounts of people related to the paintings, as part of a major project to improve the Gallery`s digital information.

We are looking for people with a postgraduate degree in the history of art, or technical art history, with a focus on one or more aspects of European painting c.1200-c.1900; a reading knowledge of at least one European language; and a proven ability to quickly research and summarise art-historical information, writing concisely, accurately, and grammatically in English for a non-specialist readership.

Appointments will take into account the balance of geographical, chronological and technical expertise across all six post holders.

Please note these six fixed-term posts are each for a period of 18 months.
