The Grand Prix National de la Peinture is an annual event organized by the French National Academy of Painting. The purpose of the competition is to encourage young painters and to promote the art of painting in France.
The Grand Prix National de la Peinture was first held in 1816, and it has been held every year since then. The competition is open to all French citizens who are under the age of 30. Each year, the competition is divided into two parts: the first part is for painters who are under the age of 25, and the second part is for painters who are 26 years old or older.
