Julian Manev Wins the 2016 Triennial Alexander ‘Greek’ Thomson Scholarship
Julian Manev, a part 2 graduate at Hall McKnight, has won the 2016 Triennial Alexander ‘Greek’
Thomson Scholarship, awarded following a competition to create an A5 sized drawing on the theme of ‘Detail’.
‘Foundations’ is a pencil–on–watercolour paper drawing that presents the chapel window and stained glass of Robinson College, Cambridge designed by Andy MacMillan and Isi Metzstein of Gillespie, Kidd & Coia in the late 1970s.
The judges’ citation states: “The winning drawing is superb and exquisitely executed. The attention to the material qualities in a monochromatic rendering is reinforced by the strong composition of the page which sensitively balances the window and the wall.”
