Darby English, the Carl Darling Buck Professor of Art History, has received the 2020 Frank Jewett Mather Award for his book, To Describe a Life: Notes from the Intersection of Art and Race Terror, Yale University Press, 2019. Granted by the College Art Association, the award honors English’s unique and evolving adaptation of art criticism as a vital, socially relevant, and transformative art form.

First presented in 1963, the Frank Jewett Mather Award is named in honor of the art critic, teacher, and scholar who was affiliated with Princeton University until his death in 1953. It is awarded for significant published art criticism that has appeared in publication in a one-year period.
