The Villa Romana Prize, German: Villa-Romana-Preis, is an art prize awarded by the Deutscher Künstlerbund. It was established in 1905 and is the oldest German art award.[1] The prize consists of a one-year artistic residence in the Villa Romana, a nineteenth-century villa on the Via Senese in the southern outskirts of Florence, in Tuscany in central Italy.[citation needed]

Max Klinger, who in 1903 had become vice-president of the Deutscher Künstlerbund, established the Villa Romana as a study centre for artists in 1905.[2] He had bought it that year for 60,000 gold lire.[citation needed] The prize was first awarded in that year also.[1]

Among the many recipients of the award are Max Beckmann (1906),[3] Ernst Barlach (1909),[4] Joseph Fassbender (1929),[5] Gerhard Marcks,[6] Toni Stadler [de] (1937),[7] Walter Stöhrer (1978),[8] and Georg Baselitz (1965).[9]
