Book Competition

19 September 2013

Apollo offers you the chance to win a superb free book.

Simply answer the question in the competition and you could win one of the finest art history books.

For our last competition prize we offered The Wallace Collection Catalogues: Gold Boxes, Charles Truman (Paul Holberton Publishing, £100)

We asked: Which building in London houses the Wallace Collection?

Answer: Hertford House.

Congratulations to Phoebe Dickerson, winner of this competition, drawn at random from the hundreds of correct answers we received.

This week’s competition prize is Masterpieces: Art and East Anglia, edited by Ian Collins (Sainsbury Centre for Visual Arts, £25)

Masterpieces: Art and East Anglia is published as part of the 50th anniversary celebrations of the University of East Anglia, and accompanies the spectacular exhibition ‘Masterpieces: Art and East Anglia’. It explores and illuminates the region’s highest creative achievements. The story told by this book is a revelation and more than a catalogue, with over 250 colour illustrations and 125 scholarly essays by 84 authors. The region has an immensely rich and high-profile heritage of ecclesiastical art and architecture and has a long tradition of producing, inspiring and nurturing great artists – from Constable and Gainsborough to Munnings, Cotman and Crome. But here Ian Collins takes a much broader view. Alongside celebrated masterpieces by painters and sculptors, ceramicists and goldsmiths are exceptional works by shawl-makers, by stained glass artists and photographers, by product designers and engineers. Each work, as revealed in a short essay by an expert in the field, is a masterpiece in its own right.

For your chance to win simply answer the following question and submit your details below before midday on 27 September 2013.

What year did Sir Robert and Lady Sainsbury donate their collection to the University of East Anglia?
