The Noordbrabants Museum and the Museo del Prado together won the prestigious Global Award for Fine Art for the exhibition which celebrated the 150th anniversary of the Dutch artist's death last year, Omroep Brabant reports.

The museums in Den Bosch and Madrid shared a large part of the exhibition. The two art institutions won in the category "Renaissance, baroque, old masters, dynasties - solo artist". Noordbrabants Museum director Charles de Mooij received the award in New York. 

The Noordbrabants Museum is thereby the first Dutch museum to win a Global Fine Art award. The prize is awarded annually to the best exhibitions around the world.
