Grand Duke Gives Out Prix Grand-Duc Adolphe

This morning, Grand Duke Henri handed out the Prix Grand-Duc Adolphe to artists Carine Kraus, who already won in 2013, and Isabelle Lutz. Since its creation in 1902 the Prix Grand-Duc Adolphe is awarded to artists who exhibit at the Salon Artistique of the Cercle artistique de Luxembourg. Easily noticeable, the award was named for and created by the former Grand Duke Adolph, the great-great grandfather of the current Grand Duke, on the initiative of his wife Grand Duchess Adelheid-Marie, an avid painter herself. Grand Duchess Maria Teresa is the patron of the award.
