Talk:Prix de Rome
|WikiProject Awards and prizes||(Rated Start-class, Mid-importance)|
There is a discrepancy regarding the year Fragonard won the Prix de Rome. Wiki's Fragonard page says he won it in 1752, however, Wiki's Prix de Rome page, in the painting category listing, says he won it in 1758. Which one is correct?
"Ravel tried a total of five times to win the prize, and the last failed attempt in 1905 was so controversial that it led to a complete reorganization of the administration at the Paris Conservatory". So, why Ravel's name is figured on the laureates list of 1901?? Gerea-en 00:18, 3 April 2007 (UTC)
- 30-April-2007: Sources say "André Caplet" won 1901 Prix de Rome in music, so I will put "(against Maurice Ravel, 3rd prize)" to adjust; Ravel won 3rd prize, but that was not stated on the short list. Thanks for the note. -Wikid77 06:48, 30 April 2007 (UTC)
