SIR DENIS MAHON ESSAY PRIZE 2021
The Sir Denis Mahon Foundation

The Sir Denis Mahon Foundation was created by Sir Denis in his lifetime. It aims to continue his philanthropic work, his art historical research and his passionate promotion of young scholars. It promotes his art collection and lifelong work and studies to the general public, organises exhibitions, supports museums, and also endows two annual prizes for young scholars and artists, the Sir Denis Mahon Essay Prize and The Mahon Award, a drawing prize at The Royal Drawing School.
In 2020, we instituted the
Sir Denis Mahon Sculptural Project Grant in collaboration with City & Guilds of London Art School, another initiative to honour his memory.
