A new Fellowship designed to support scholarly research on an aspect of British-American artistic exchange.

Sponsored by the Terra Foundation for American Art and administered by the Paul Mellon Centre for Studies in British Art.

This four-month Fellowship is designed to facilitate original, rigorous and exciting scholarship that investigates an aspect of the artistic dialogue between Britain and the United States during the period 1500–1980.

Awarded annually, the Fellowship will give one scholar an award of £9,500 to cover four months of research in an aspect of British-American artistic exchange. Eligible topics could include American or British artists whose careers have spanned both countries (such as John Singleton Copley, Benjamin West and David Hockney), American collectors whose core collection is British Art or artworks that have travelled between Britain and the United States.

The full Terra-PMC Fellowship rubric can be found here and will be offered in the upcoming Spring 2018 round of funding.
