Adam Dant, Jerwood Drawing Prize winner (2002) and member of the judging panel for the Young Masters Art Prize 2012, discusses the idea of the Prize and its relation to his own work. In this short interview Adam Dant explores the value of a Prize which celebrates the influence of the Old Masters in contemporary art. He contemplates how the ethos of the Young Masters Art Prize is reflected in his own work, and muses on the skilful appropriation of Old Master references in the work of previous Young Masters Art Prize winners.
