Young Masters Art Prize
In 2008, respected gallerist Cynthia Corbett had the idea of establishing the Young Masters Art Prize with the aim of celebrating artists who pay homage to the skill and traditions of the past; knowing that young artists today are not afraid, unlike their predecessors, to look back at art history and its lessons.
We would like to thank these industry specialists for sponsoring the Young Masters Art Prize 2017.
