Graduate programs in Fine and Decorative Art from Sotheby's Institute

The Master’s degree in Fine and Decorative Art and Design derives from the oldest program at Sotheby's Institute of Art, which started in 1969. It offers an integrated study of fine and decorative art and design based on case studies drawn from the late Renaissance through to the latetwentieth century. These studies are used as lenses through which to examine the production and materiality of art objects, and to consider aspects of consumption, including patronage and collecting and the historical and contemporary art market. Sotheby's Institute of Art in London is accredited by The University of Manchester, and offers world-class education across a variety of art world disciplines. 15-week Semester courses in Decorative Arts and Design also offered at the London campus.

Sir Denis Mahon Essay Prize 2020

This prize comprises an award of £2,000 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, Carracci, Caravaggio and Nicolas 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 Graham Sutherland, Stanley Spencer, Henry Moore, Eduardo Paolozzi and Giorgio Morandi and he much admired their work. Of the 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 undergraduates or post graduate students aged 30 years or below.
Closing date: Friday 4th September 2020.

The winning student will be invited to present his or her essay as a lecture on 9th November 2020 at Cromwell Place, London, SW7 2JE.
