Twice a year, the CAA awards grants through the fund to support book-length scholarly manuscripts in the history of art, visual studies, and related subjects that have been accepted by a publisher on their merits, but cannot be published in the most desirable form without a subsidy.  

Dr. McPherson's book, "Art and Celebrity in the Age of Reynolds and Siddons," is scheduled to be published by Pennsylvania State University Press.

An article adapted from a chapter of the book was published in the Summer 2015 edition of Eighteenth-Century Studies, the official journal of the American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies, and won the 2016 Annibel Jenkins Prize.
