Terra Foundation for American Art-Paul Mellon Centre Fellowship

Since 2018, the Terra Foundation-Paul Mellon Centre Fellowship is offered annually to support a non-US scholar pursuing research on an aspect of Anglo-American artistic exchange. This four-month research fellowship is designed to facilitate original, rigorous, and exciting new scholarship on an aspect of the artistic relationship between Britain and the United States from 1500 to 1980. The fellowship cannot be used to support research in the fields of archaeology, the current practice of architecture, or the performing arts.

  • Dawn Pereira is the 2020–21 Terra Foundation-Paul Mellon Centre Fellow.

This award is administered by the Paul Mellon Centre.
