about the recipient

The Award Committee and the ANS Board of Trustees is pleased to announce that Portuguese artist João Duarte is the recipient of the 2011 J. Sanford Saltus Award for Signal Achievement in the Art of the Medal. Graduated in 1978 from the Escola Superior de Belas-Artes de Lisboa, with an emphasis in plastic arts and sculpture, Prof. Duarte serves on the fine arts faculty of the Universidade de Lisboa. Over the course of a highly prolific career, he has focused his energies primarily on sculpture and medallic art producing 45 public art monuments located throughout Portugal and 12 commemorative coins for the Portuguese Mint (including Krause-Mishler Standard Catalogue numbers 678, 679, 750, 773, 787). But it is the roughly 150 medals he has created to date that have most caught the eye of critics, collectors, and curators, earning him already a number of prestigious awards.
