The Georgia Museum of Art book wins national award
The exhibition catalogue “Master, Pupil, Follower: 16th- to 18th-Century Italian Works on Paper,” published by the Georgia Museum of Art at the University of Georgia.

ATHENS, GA.- The Georgia Museum of Art at the University of Georgia has received an honorable mention from the Eric Hoffer Book Awards in the art category for its exhibition catalogue “Master, Pupil, Follower: 16th- to 18th-Century Italian Works on Paper.” This fully illustrated publication of important works of Italian art was also shortlisted for the Hoffer’s grand prize and is a finalist in the Foreword INDIES for art books. It was designed by the Brooklyn-based firm Morcos Key.

The exhibition “Master, Pupil, Follower” was on display at the Georgia Museum of Art from December 2019 through March 2020. The book features illustrations and entries for each of the 32 works in the exhibition by co-curators Robert Randolf Coleman, Nelda Damiano and Benedetta Spadaccini as well as Sonia Couturier. It also features essays by Coleman and museum director William Underwood Eiland. Among the objects included are prints and drawings by artists Giulio Benso, Giovanni Battista Tiepolo, Giovanni Benedetto Castiglione, Salvator Rosa and followers of Veronese and Tintoretto. The museum has received several honorable mentions from the Hoffer Awards as well as a first-place prize in 2017 for “Icon of Modernism: Representing the Brooklyn Bridge, 1883 – 1950” and the award for academic press in 2010 for “The American Scene on Paper: Prints and Drawings from the Schoen Collection.”

Damiano, the museum’s Pierre Daura Curator of European Art, said, “We are grateful for this honorable mention from the Eric Hoffer Book Awards, which underscores the importance of scholarly publications. This catalogue allowed us to make known works on paper in our permanent collection, and in the collections of two important patrons, Giuliano Ceseri and Jeffrey Horvitz.”

The Eric Hoffer Book Awards for Small, Academic and Independent Books highlights works from all genres of literature and helps publishers and authors alike gain exposure. The awards are geared toward notable and independent writing with hundreds of nominees annually.
