(MSS) Luxembourg artist Carine Kraus was on Wednesday awarded the Grand-Duc Adolphe Prize by Grand Duke Henri and Duchess Maria Teresa at the Grand Ducal Palace.

The ceremony was also attended by Culture Minister Maggy Nagel, as well as Jean Petit, president of the prize's jury and the “Salon du Cercle Artistique”, where three of Kraus' paintings were on display from November 8 to December 1.

Carine Kraus, who lived and worked in Lausanne, Basel, Paris and Munich before returning to Luxembourg in 1983, works with various materials, techniques and themes.

Her latest works focus on photography and video recordings, but she also likes to include drawings, lithography, collage and integrating mixed media in her work.

The Grand-Duc Adolphe Prize is awarded to an artist, such as a painter, sculptor or architect every two years and has existed since 1902.
