BOHUN GALLERY RECEIVES ACCOLADE FOR EXCELLENCE IN BRITISH ART HISTORY RESEARCH
Bohun Gallery is delighted to announce that their recently published 'John Piper and the Church' catalogue has been shortlisted for the William M. B. Berger Prize for British Art History.
The catalogue, 'John Piper and the Church' celebrates the contribution John Piper made to the development of modern art in British churches throughout the 20th century. It charts his life-long fascination with, and care for, church buildings - a relationship which began as a young boy when he produced his own sketches and guidebook to the churches in his home county of Surrey. The catalogue accompanied the show 'John Piper and the Church' which was curated by Patricia Jordan Evans, Director of Bohun Gallery, on behalf of the Friends of Dorchester Abbey as a celebration of HM The Queen's Diamond Jubilee. The catalogue includes contributions from Francis Spalding, David Stancliffe, Nicholas Usherwood, David Fraser Jenkins, Simon Martin, Stephen Laird, Nicholas Cranfield and Hugh Fowler-Wright.
In 2001 the Berger Collection Educational Trust and The British Art Journal established a prize for excellence in the field of British art history, in honor 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. It celebrates outstanding achievement in the history of British art and is administered by The British Art Journal, the leading research journal, and awarded jointly with the Berger Collection Educational Trust of Denver, Colorado.
