Adriano Aymonino’s Enlightened Eclecticism: The Grand Design of the 1st Duke and Duchess of Northumberland is the winner of the 2022 William MB Berger Prize for British Art History.

The annual prize was created in 2001 to recognize excellence in the field of British art history by the Berger Collection Educational Trust and The British Art Journal in honor of the late American collector and patron William M. B. Berger (1925–1999), who amassed a serious collection of British paintings, which was gifted to the Denver Art Museum in 2019.
