Recipient of $100,000 Fondation Simone et Cino Del Duca Grand Prize Announced

Markus Lüpertz has won this year’s Fondation Simone et Cino Del Duca Grand Prix, which recognizes artists based in Europe. The award comes with over $100,000 in cash. Marc Desgrandschamps was also recognized by the foundation, receiving over $25,000.

Lüpertz was also the winner of the 1970 Prize from Villa Romana and a 1971 prize given by the German Association of Critics, and he’s edited a journal called Frau und Hund for over a decade. The German artist currently has a retrospective on view at the Musée d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris—his first retrospective in France.
