Prix de Rome
The Prix de Rome is the pre-eminent incentive award for talented visual artists from the Netherlands and the Caribbean part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. The prize is awarded once every 2 years with the aim of stimulating the development of highly talented visual artists and to boost their visibility, thereby ensuring that the visual art field remains topical. The Mondriaan Fund has organised and financed the award since 2012. The Prix de Rome Visual Arts 2023 is being organised in collaboration with the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam.
