PAT ANDREA painter:

Dick Stapel was informed of an important award for the art of portraiture in Paris. After our final exams at the Academy of Fine Arts in The Hague we mounted his painting on top of our Deux Chevaux and drove from Holland to the impressive building on the Seine, the Institut de France with its cupola by Mazarin, the home of the five Academies, with its famous Académie Française. There is also the Académie des Beaux–Arts which issues the Paul-Louis Weiller Award for portraiture.
