THE SIR DENIS MAHON FOUNDATION – A REVIEW OF THE FIRST DECADE
A decade of the Foundation.
This review for the decade is a tribute to the Foundation’s ten years of charitable work in memory of the late world renowned scholar and philanthropist, Sir Denis Mahon.
Sir Denis was a distinguished collector and scholar of Italian art who had a particular interest in drawing, carving and conservation. The Foundation was established in 1988, but only became active following Sir Denis’s death in April 2011. Over the past ten years, the Foundation has been exceptionally active thanks to the dedication and hard work of the Trustees, the Artistic Director, the collaborators, artists and young scholars. The Foundation has strived to honour Sir Denis’s legacy by promoting the education and accessibility of art and art history, and supporting the development of young artists. It has funded numerous exhibitions, provided grants and prizes to young scholars and artists, funded the Student Art Pass and made significant donations of funding and artwork to museums across the world.
