Although in recent years the Prix de Rome showed a lot of installations, video and performance related work, painting never left. Since November the Dordrechts Museum shows an overview of 30 contemporary Dutch painters in the exhibition What's Up! Amongst the selected artists are Claire Harvey (Prix de Rome basic prize 2007) and Derk Thijs (Prix de Rome second prize 2004). Website Lost Painters calls the work of Thijs 'excellent', it reminds them of Paul Klee.
