The Threadneedle Prize
The Threadneedle Prize is about contemporary figurative art. It's aim is to
- champion the most interesting figurative artists working in Europe.
- offer both established and emerging artists a high profile opportunity to showcase their work at a leading venue in Central London.
- maintain its status as the country’s leading competition for figurative and representational painting and sculpture
Previous winners and shortlisted artists include
- Nina Murdoch, now represented by Marlborough Fine Art, and
- Rose Wylie, who is currently on show at Tate Britain.
Figurative Art Today (the 2014 exhibition) will include the selected artworks for the final exhibition and will intentionally represent a comprehensive survey of both high quality and variety in figurative art being produced in the UK and Europe.
The Threadneedle Prize was established in 2008 with the support of Threadneedle Investments, a leading international investment management firm with long-term commitment to supporting the arts.
