Congratulations to Boston Globe art critic Sebastian Smee, who won this year’s Pulitzer Prize for Criticism.
Via the proud parent:
Sebastian Smee, art critic of The Boston Globe, today was awarded the Pulitzer Prize for Criticism.
The award represents the third time in the past decade that a Globe critic has been singled out for the prestigious honor. Arts writer and photography critic Mark Feeney won the prize three years ago, and former chief book critic Gail Caldwell won in 2001.
A 38-year-old native of Australia who now lives in Somerville, Smee came to the Globe in 2008 after four years as the national art critic for The Australian, a Sydney-based newspaper. He was a finalist for a Pulitzer two years ago.
