MA student Nuard Tadevosyan wins international essay award.

We are pleased to announce that our current graduate student, Nuard Tadevosyan (MA, Art History), won the 2020 Mavis Batey Essay Prize offered through the Gardens Trust (UK). The annual prize is awarded to any student (or recent graduate), worldwide, registered at an institution of higher education. Tadevosyan’s essay, “Della Robbia Green: From Sublime to Sinister" looked at the use of the colour green in Della Robbia’s ceramics workshop in Renaissance Florence, drawing links to the representation of natural imagery and the symbolism of colour. Tadevosyan’s essay will be published in an upcoming edition of Garden History, one of the most important peer-reviewed scholarly journals focusing on garden history, landscape, and horticulture in the world.  Congratulations Nuard!
