Nicholas Hall is pleased to offer a semester-long internship position at our New York gallery each Spring and Fall. Working across multiple facets of the business, the intern will have a chance to learn about provenance and archival research, art market, conservation and framing, art administration as well as the inner workings of the Old Masters trade.

The internship is best suited for graduate students who have committed to a professional career in academia, commercial gallery, or museum world; occasionally undergraduates in their senior year are also considered. Preference is given to candidates with knowledge and experience working with European Old Master paintings, drawings or sculpture.
