Intro
The Françoise van den Bosch Award 2006 will be officially presented to Karl Fritsch in the Stedelijk Museum ’s-Hertogenbosch.


Since 1980 the Françoise van den Bosch Award is awarded every two years to an (international) jewellery artist whose work is of outstanding quality and appeals to younger generations of artists. The candidate for the Award is chosen by an independent jury which is newly appointed for each new round.
The Award is granted by the Françoise van den Bosch Foundation and involves an amount of money (5000 euro) and the acquisition of a piece of jewellery by the award winner, which will be added to the Françoise van den Bosch Collection in the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam. The private Foundation, initiated by friends and family of jewellery designer Françoise van den Bosch (1944-1977), started in 1980 after her sudden death. It is the aim of the Foundation to stimulate international jewellery.




The Françoise van den Bosch Award 2006 will be officially presented to Karl Fritsch in the Stedelijk Museum ’s-Hertogenbosch (SM’s) on Sunday January 21 2007.
The jury included: Robert Smit, Suska Mackert, Jan Walgrave, Monica Gaspar and Ida van Zijl.

Karl Fritsch (Sonthofen, 1963) studied first in Pforzheim and later in Munich where he currently lives and works. Karl Fritsch belongs to a younger generation of jewellery artists. His work is cutting edge, teasing old and new conventions in jewellery, and has received international recognition from the start of his career. In recent years his jewellery has increasingly became more and more spectacular and colourful.
