posted by Christopher Howard — Dec 02, 2009

CAA is pleased to announce four recipients of the Wyeth Foundation for American Art Publication Grant for 2009:

  • Hiroko Ikegami, The Great Migrator: Robert Rauschenberg and the Global Rise of American Art, MIT Press
  • Kevin D. Murphy, Jonathan Fisher of Blue Hill, Maine: Commerce, Culture, and Community on the Eastern Frontier, University of Massachusetts Press
  • David Raskin, Donald Judd’s Local Orders: Art, Principles, and Activism, Yale University Press
  • Alison Syme, A Touch of Blossom: John Singer Sargent and the Queer Flora of Fin-de-Siècle Art, Pennsylvania State University Press

Since 2005, Wyeth grants have annually supported one or more book-length scholarly manuscripts in the history of American art, visual studies, and related subjects that have been accepted by a publisher on their merits but cannot be published in the most desirable form without a subsidy.

For purposes of this grant program, “American art” is defined as art created in the United States, Canada, and Mexico prior to 1970.

Application criteria and guidelines for the Wyeth Grant are available at www.collegeart.org/wyeth or from nyoffice@collegeart.org. Deadline: October 1, 2010.
