The Young Masters Art Prize is a unique, not-for profit biennial competition open to international and UK-based artists who combine innovation with awareness of the Old Masters and art of the past. It aims to give global recognition to artists in the early stages of their career. The inaugural Young Masters Art Prize took place in 2009. In 2008, respected American Gallerist, Cynthia Corbett had the idea of establishing the Young Masters Art Prize with the aim of celebrating artists who pay homage to the skill and traditions of the past; knowing that young artists today are not afraid, unlike their predecessors, to look back at art history and its lessons. Since then, the zeitgeist has evolved, and we have begun to witness the art community embracing the past and drawing inspiration from the Old Masters.
