    Sir Denis Mahon Essay Prize 2018

    This prize comprises an award of £1,000 for an essay of distinction which reflects Sir Denis Mahon’s studies, research and interests. Whilst Sir Denis focussed on the 17th century period and especially on the work of Guercino, Carraci, Caravaggio and Poussin, his much wider range of art historical interests included the 15th and 16th centuries, and also certain key modern and contemporary artists. Sir Denis was a contemporary and friend of artists such as Graham Sutherland, Henry Moore, Eduardo Paolozzi and Giorgio Morandi who's work he much admired. Of contemporary artists, he particularly liked the post-war avant-garde conceptual British artists, as well as David Hockney, Grayson Perry and others. We welcome essays on any of these aspects and artists including the contemporary ones.

    The prize is open to undergraduate or post graduate students aged 30 years or below.
    Closing date: Friday 7th September 2018. The winning student will be invited to present their essay as a lecture on 8th November 2018 at The Royal Drawing School, Shoreditch, London.
