Terra Foundation for American Art-Paul Mellon Centre Fellowship

Between 2018 and 2021, the Terra Foundation-Paul Mellon Centre Fellowship supported one non-US scholar pursuing research on an aspect of Anglo-American artistic exchange per academic year. This four-month research fellowship was 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.
