This autumn, The Cynthia Corbett Gallery will launch the fourth edition of the Young Masters Art Prize with a call for artists and an exhibition. The exhibition will bring together work by previous Young Masters artists including ceramicist Matt Smith and painter Juergen Wolf.


The Young Masters Art Prize celebrates emerging and established contemporary artists who pay homage to the skill and innovation of the Old Masters and art of the past. In 2014, a second strand of the Prize was launched - the Young Masters Maylis Grand Ceramics Prize - to give a separate platform for ceramics and reflect the creativity, innovation and excellence of this artistic medium.

Artists working in any medium and from anywhere in the world are invited to apply for both prizes from 4 October 2016. Applicants for the Ceramics Prize must also show exceptional command of the medium of ceramics and an awareness of the heritage of ceramic craft.

The exhibition to accompany the launch of the call for artists will take place during Frieze Week and will feature the work of previous Young Masters artists.

The Young Masters Art Prize is a not-for-profit initiative founded in 2009 by Gallerist Cynthia Corbett that gives a platform to both emerging and established artists who show exceptional skill and artistic integrity whilst working in dialogue with the Old Masters and the history of art. Since its launch, the Prize has quickly established itself as a significant international project and has attracted critical and public acclaim. It has also developed a strong international profile through its curatorial touring programme.
