Cain proves herself able with 2010 Threadneedle Prize
Glasgow based artist Patricia Cain has won the £25k Threadneedle prize for visual art for her pastel depictions of Zaha Hadid’s Transport Museum, currently under construction on the banks of the Clyde.

Cain described the piece, which topped the figurative art category, as conveying the “beauty of construction” by capturing a fleeting moment in the dynamic construction aesthetic.

Now in its third year the Threadneedle prize is regarded as a counterbalance to the headline grabbing Turner prize, with its preference for traditional over conceptual artists.

An exhibition of the 46 shortlisted works continues at the Mall Galleries in central London until Saturday.
