Dulwich Picture Gallery Receives Multiple Award Nominations
Dulwich Picture Gallery has developed an international reputation for its temporary exhibitions particularly its four areas of focus: Modern British, Rediscovering Old Masters, North American Series and Works on Paper.
LONDON.- Dulwich Picture Gallery’s recent sell-out catalogue for Paul Nash: The Elements, written by David Fraser Jenkins, has been long-listed for the prestigious The William MB Berger Prize for British Art History, in association with The British Art Journal. The five assessors are Dr Timothy J. Standring, Gates Foundation Curator of Painting & Sculpture at Denver Art Museum; Desmond Shawe-Taylor, The Surveyor of the Queen’s Pictures; Angus Trumble, Senior Curator of Paintings and Sculpture at the Yale Centre for British Art; Katharine Eustace, Editor of The Sculpture Journal; and Dr. Rosemary Hill, writer and historian who also sits on the editorial board of the London Review of Books. Sarah Lawson reviewed the catalogue for the August 2010 edition of The Art Book and described the catalogue as “a beautifully illustrated and intelligently organised way in to Nash and his work.” The catalogue has been sold in 20 countries, including Australia and Taiwan.

Paul Nash: The Elements was recently selected by art critic Martin Herbert as one of the top five art exhibitions of 2010 for Time Out.

The William M.B. Berger Prize for British Art History was established in 2001 by the Berger Collection Educational Trust and The British Art Journal, in honour of the memory of the late William M. B. Berger. The prize was created to recognize that some of the very finest work in art history is being carried out in the field of British art. Since its inception, the Berger Prize has come to be recognized as the most prestigious in the field.

The short-list announcement will be made at the end of June and the winner announced during the week of 4 July.

Marsh Award
Walking the Dog, by Peter Randall-Page, which is situated in the Gallery gardens, has also been shortlisted for the annual Marsh Award for excellence in public sculpture, “The UK’s premier public sculpture award”. Last year’s winner was ‘Memorial to 158 Squadron” by Peter Naylor. The award is presented for excellence in contemporary work, and also for distinction in restoration of historical works. The sculpture was presented to Dulwich Picture Gallery in September 2010 as a Bicentenary gift from the Art Fund and it has been hugely popular with visitors to the Gallery. It is the first sculpture to be included in the permanent collection and it is also the Gallery’s first acquisition of contemporary art. Peter Randall-Page will present a lecture on contemporary British Sculpture in the forthcoming lecture series ‘Art in the Open Air’. Leading contemporary British sculptors, Richard Wilson RA and Cornelia Parker RA will also give lectures, to discuss their practice, influences and development of their work.
