The Rome Scholarship 2011 - Recipients and Finalists

2011 Recipient - Lewis Hazelwood-Horner

The 2011 RBA Rome Scholar was Lewis Hazelwood-Horner who has written a short account of his stay:

"I had never been to Rome before and found it has so much to offer in terms of its architecture, cultural heritage, sculptures, paintings, people, street life. Because of this I will always want to return. I wanted to explore a different view of Rome so I focused my interest on an everyday aspect of life in Rome, in particular its market squares, gelaterias and bars. I found what I was looking for in the old part of the city near the Pantheon. The British School became my home for four weeks this summer. It's a Lutyens building in a picturesque setting with great accommodation and facilities conveniently situated adjacent to the Beaux Arts Gallery, on the edge of the Borghese Gardens. Each evening I would sit in the courtyard with the other artists and scholars and we would chat about our day. We talked late into the night discussing art and architecture. On days off I would play tennis with the other scholars. I met many interesting people on the trip with who I am still in contact. I am starting on the pathway to making painting my profession. The Marianne Von Werther Memorial Award/Rome Scholarship was a great opportunity for a young artist like myself; I thoroughly enjoyed the trip and would urge other artists to strongly consider applying for this scholarship because it is such a wonderful opportunity to be given by the RBA".
