S. Lane Faison, Jr. 1929 Prize

Department Williams College · June 2015 S. Lane Faison Jr. ’29 (1907–2006) was among the most influential art educators of the twentieth century, and taught several generations of America’s leading museum directors, curators and scholars. He did so by setting the highest standards for looking carefully and sensitively at paintings and sculpture. As a curator and art critic for the influential journal The Nation, he was an important voice in the world of contemporary art, which he wrote about with the same clarity, precision and wit that he brought to the great art of the past. The S. Lane Faison, Jr. 1929 Prize is awarded to the student whose paper best reflects his high standards in the critical engagement with an object of art. More about this award
