Bursary Prix de Rome Landscape 1808: J.A. Knip

Neo-classicist Josephus Augustus Knip (1777-1847) received a bursary in 1808 in the context of the Prix de Rome in the category Landscape. In these early days of the prize, there was no competition written out yet.
After completing his educational periode in Paris, he resided in Italy from 1809 to 1812 where he created a series of aquarelles of city- and landscapes. The drawings came into the collection I.Q. van Regteren Altena and were acquired by the Rijksmuseum Amsterdam in 2014. More information on the residency of J.A. Knip in Rome.
