Book Competition

29 August 2014

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

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

For our last competition prize we offered Scotland’s Shrine: The Scottish National War Memorial, by Duncan Macmillan (Lund Humphries, £40)

We asked: In which year was the Scottish National War Memorial officially opened?

Answer: 1927

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

This week’s competition prize is Rendez-vous with Art, by Philippe de Montebello and Martin Gayford (Thames and Hudson, £19.95)

In this expansive series of conversations, the former director of the Metropolitan Museum of Art joins forces with one of Britain’s top art critics, the two men meeting in museums and galleries across the world to discuss the enduring power of art. The resulting texts are packed with their insights on aesthetic experience, the context of museums, and how display affects how we look at art. A thought-provoking read.

For your chance to win simply answer the following question and submit your details here before midday on 12 September 2014.

In which year did Philippe de Montebello assume the directorship of the Metropolitan Museum of Art?

This competition closes at midday on 12 September 2014
