Wolfgang Ratjen Award

The Wolfgang Ratjen Award is an annual award for distinguished research in the field of graphic arts. The prize, funded by the Ratjen Foundation, Vaduz, is curated and presented by the Association of Friends of the Zentralinstitut für Kunstgeschichte e.V. 'CONIVNCTA FLORESCIT'.
The purpose of this award, which honours the memory of the collector Wolfgang Ratjen (1943-1997), is to encourage younger scholars to address neglected topics and to bring the results of their work to the attention of a broader public.
Consideration will be given to a Ph.D. dissertation, M.A. thesis, or scholarly article of larger scope, dealing with art historical questions which involve drawings or prints in Western art. Applicants should have an academic background.
The winning candidate chosen by an independent committee of scholars, will receive € 5,000 and is expected to spend three months conducting research at the Zentralinstitut für Kunstgeschichte in Munich.

Candidates for the award are requested to send a copy of the research paper in question, along with a curriculum vitae detailing academic qualifications, copies of certificates and a list of publications to:

Direktor des Zentralinstituts für Kunstgeschichte
