Prix de Rome

Founded in 1807


Prix de Rome

In this group you will find the winners of the Prix de Rome.

The Prix de Rome is a prestigious incentive prize for young artists and architects. Inspired by classical antiquity, King Louis XIV established a prize in 1666 to enable young artists to study the art of classical antiquity in Rome. In 1807, Lodewijk Napoleon introduced the prize in the Netherlands and Belgium, after which King Willem I confirmed the existence of the prize in 1817, as part of the foundation of the Royal Academy. Since 1985, the prize has been divided into 10 categories: drawing, graphics, painting, theatre/visual arts, architecture, urban design & landscape architecture, photography, film & video, sculpture and visual arts & public space. The prize has been regularly renewed over the past 200 years, but the aim has always been to stimulate talented visual artists and architects. Since 2011, the Prix de Rome has been part of the Mondriaan Fund.
