Wolfgang Ratjen Award

Award for Early Career Research in the Graphic Arts

The Wolfgang Ratjen Award is an annual award for early career research in the field of graphic arts. The prize, funded by the Foundation Wolfgang Ratjen, is curated and presented by Conivncta Florescit Friends of the Zentralinstitut für Kunstgeschichte.

 

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 publication, dealing with art historical questions which involve drawings or prints in Western art. Applicants should be graduated.

The winning candidate, chosen by an independent committee of scholars, will receive € 6,000, and is expected to spend three months conducting research at the Zentralinstitut für Kunstgeschichte in Munich.
