Rodrigo Uría Meruéndano Art Law Award

Rodrigo Uría Meruéndano Art Law Award

The Rodrigo Uría Meruéndano Art Law Award reflects the Foundation’s ongoing support and promotion of innovative legal studies regarding the art world. These include legal studies on artists, works and the dissemination of cultural assets that are a source of knowledge, vehicle for cultural exchange, medium for the expression of ideas and an invitation to aesthetic appreciation.

The accolade is also in memory of the illustrious lawyer and patron of the arts, Rodrigo Uría Meruéndano, former Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Prado Museum (2004-2007) and first Chairman of the Professor Uría Foundation.
