Description

The internationally-renowned John Moores Painting Prize is the UK's longest-established painting prize, founded in 1957. Named after the sponsor of the prize, Sir John Moores (1896 – 1993), the competition is entered and judged anonymously and open to all UK-based artists working with paint.
The competition culminates in an exhibition held at the Walker Art Gallery every two years, and 2018 will mark the art prize’s 60th anniversary and its 30th exhibition, having championed contemporary British painting for over two decades longer than any other art prize of its scale.


The catalogue features all 60 of the displayed works, including the five prizewinners and, in addition, the winning entries from the John Moores Painting Prize China. To celebrate 60 years of the art prize, there is also an anniversary volume containing all of the first prizewinners from the previous exhibitions, including David Hockney (1967), Mary Martin (1969), Peter Doig (1993), Keith Coventry (2010), Sarah Pickstone (2012), Rose Wylie (2014) and Michael Simpson (2016). They are supported with archive images of the Walker Art Gallery, judges, tickets, letters, catalogue covers, opening events and artists.
