Apollo Book Competition 13 April 2012
For our last competition prize we offered you Van Gogh to Kandinsky: Symbolist Landscape in Europe 1880–1910 (Thames & Hudson, £34.95).
We asked you: Which museum houses Kandinsky’s Cossacks (1910–11)?
Congratulations to Thomas Boehm, winner of this competition, drawn at random from the hundreds of correct answers we received.
Our new competition prize is Picasso and Modern British Art (Tate Publishing, £24.99). Published to accompany the touring exhibition of the same name at Tate Britain, London (until 15 July), the catalogue explores Picasso’s lifelong connections with Britain. Picasso’s extensive legacy and influence on British Modernism is considered through seven artists for whom he proved an important stimulus, including Ben Nicholson, Henry Moore and David Hockney. Featuring more than 150 illustrations and texts by leading experts in the field, this publication sheds light on a relatively unknown aspect of Picasso’s career, while reflecting upon British culture from the early to mid-20th century.
