It is not HM who made the choices of artists,there is a special jury under auspicion of the Royal Palace Amsterdam.In general HM is a affeccionado of contemporary art,that is why this specific event is one of the highlights in the Royal agenda to her.You will see plenty of pics of HM walking along and talking too the artists discussing their works.She's never in a hurry on this occasion.

On another note,I am glad the Royal Grant is back where it belongs,the Royal Palace here in Amsterdam,as that was closed for years due to extensive restauration inside.Now it is still completely under scaffolding as they try to clean the outside back to the original 16th century colour.The last few years the Royal Grant was awarded at the municipal museum,The Hague,not quiet the same...

Vincent van Gogh ( 1853 - 1890) left some intriguing correspondence.
The 902 letters,820 letters by and 80 letters to Vincent give an idea of
his much moved life,his strong relationship with his brother Theo and the development of his works.Very very interesting indeed.

While we're at it,talking of artists/painters:

HM will hand-out the Royal Grant for Free Painting this friday at the Royal Palace,Amsterdam.The Prize,(6000 euro)was instituted
by King Willem III in 1871,and the annual tradition was upheld by Queens Wilhelmina,Juliana and now Beatrix,an acknowledged
artist herself.

This particular engagement is absolutely one of the highlights in HM's agenda,she truly is very interested and knowledgeble
and the artists are always in awe of her eye for detail.

Great photos, Q Bea looks like she really enjoys this art exhibit/display. Thanks Lucien for explaining how the winners were chosen, and the venue being back where it belongs.

All the years the city of Otawa receives a present from the Royal Dutch Family. It consists in thousands of tulips for the parks and others places in the capital of Canada. Is there anybody who knows about it? What is the origine of this anual present? Thanks.

I've been searching in the web and I read that this gift has its origine in a gesture of the canadians for the Royal Family. During the second world war Queen Juliana with her family lived in the Government House in Otawa. With the end of the war and the return to Holland, the Queen gave this present to the city. The canadian army also helped for the liberation of the Netherlands from the nazis. These history connections are so important.

Lucien, if you can tell, what is HM Bea holding in the 3rd picture at the opening of the ROC College in Hengelo, it looks like a knife on a statue pedestal? (I dont speak/read Dutch, so i could not understand what text was posted with the photos.) Thanks in advance.

It is a handle with which by switching it HM opened the College.

The building on itself is an old one,it once housed one of the great dutch companies anyone believed would be around till eternity.
Before the invention of mergers and interim managers that is,it was Stork,metal and innovative machinery.Huge company globally.

HM holds an old handle of the Stork factory as a symbol referring to that time to open a new life to the building,
as well as to the students of the college.

Oh, thank you so much for the reply. We use an expression to "throw the switch" meaning turning the electricity on or off by a lever such as this one. I understand, thanks again for your explaination. (Can you imagine images of HM Bea with a knife stabbing something, ha!)

President Venetiaan of Surinam said that a state visit by queen Beatrix would be much appreciated, to ease the relations between Surinam and the Netherlands. The queen did attend the independence of Surinam in the 70-ties, but after that never visited the country again. If Desi Bouterse doesn't win the elections it might be a good idea indeed, although apparently the ministairy of foreign affairs is afraid that the Queen;s visit will cause emonstrations against The Netherlands.

They are not afraid for demonstrations against The Netherlands,one doesn't want for HM to have to shake hands with narcotica king Desi Bouterse thus putting her in a truly impossible situation,the populist golddigger & so-called leader of the people.........the leader of the people...my foot...tell me who your leader is and I tell you what people you are,as an aside of tell me who your friends are,and I tell you who you are.That country,who's largest chunk of people live here,in The Netherlands,is in shambles due to Bouterse and his croonies & other subsequent incompetent no-bodies.That Mugabe of south-america.

Now they want HM to visit? Oh really?

What they do want is money,and money solo,beggars,and just that,and a chance for Bouterse to fool HM.
Let those idiots in Suri first have the guts to arrest that killer and bring him to trial,no dutch Monarch will
visit that rediculous but beautifull and lazy piece of land any sooner than after that has been settled.

For the foreigners among us who don't know the history.

After their independence in 1975 Surinam at first did reasonably well,but that was until that aforementioned crapule had a coup 'd- Etat and had 8 of his political opponents murdered at Fort Zeelandia in Paramaribo,participating in the actual killing himself.He was in charge of feasting on the government money and drugtrafficking big time and demanding billions from the dutch for years....Yeah,right.

I am probably the only one on the Boards and Forums who have met him,had too,he was my sport instructor while I was in the army 36 years ago at Havelte (when my compagny was on a special assignment there as that is one of the places our US friends put us up with nuclear weapons,for safekeeping just in case....but that was in the Cold War era),a mere sergeant,nothing more but already flipflopping with all sorts of asides besides dear Ingrid,his now ex-wife.Oh,really,as long as that country doesn't have the guts to arrest him,no-one will take them seriously.Seriously.
But no-one will as everyone saying they are someone down there got there because of him in the first place.

Pocket filling cry babies.I do not hold them in such high esteem,they do not deserve that.
