Miguel has been awarded the prize for the research he conducted into six less-known 19th-century German artists who travelled to Chile to portray the indigenous people, as well as the local flora and fauna.  "In announcing its decision, the jury highlighted the fact that Gaete’s work paves the way for future research into the discursive and cultural connections between German Romantic art and colonial structures."  Read more about Miguel's research and the prize.

Huge congratulations to Miguel!
