Two research interns have been selected for the FNG research internship programme for 2022. The decisions were made based on the applications and the following points were underlined:
- The point of view of the archives and collections: priority was given to students whose applications were based on a concrete and defined part of the FNG collections and especially to previously unstudied and/or topical materials
- Preparation of the working plan and the research questions related to the chosen collections material
The FNG research intern programme has two aims. The Finnish National Gallery wishes to enhance the study of its collections, including artworks, archives, and objects. At the same time it wishes to support students who choose to study subjects based on physical collections and objects, archive material and data.
The research interns at the Finnish National Gallery for 2022 are:
Hilla Männikkö, University of Helsinki
The miniatures in the Collection of the Finnish National Gallery / Sinebrychoff Art Museum from the viewpoint of materialism; the miniatures in the collection, conservation material at the Sinebrychoff Art Museum, photographs and other archival material in the Archive Collections of the Finnish National Gallery, collections of the Finnish National Gallery Library
Laura Nissinen, University of Helsinki
Connections between scientific imagery and Finnish art at the turn of the 19th century, especially anatomical images; sketches and sketchbooks in the Collection of the Finnish National Gallery / Ateneum Art Museum, photographs and other archival material in the Archive Collections of the Finnish National Gallery, collections of the Finnish National Gallery Library
Both interns have already started their three-month internship and have their own in-house tutors to support them with studying their chosen material.
