The Fries Museum in Leeuwarden has won a Global Fine Art Award at the annual ceremony in New York for its exhibition of work by Lawrence Alma-Tadema. The museum won the award for the Best Impressionist and Modern (1838-WWII) – Solo Artist, seeing off opposition from the Whitney Museum of American Art and the Pulitzer Art Foundation, as well as the Gemeentemuseum in The Hague. The exhibition of 80 works featuring classical scenes by the Frisian artist (1936-1912) drew a record 158,000 visitors to the museum last winter.
