Three artists have been chosen to make new official portraits of king Willem-Alexander: Femmy Otten, Iris van Dongen and photographer Rineke Dijkstra.
The three were selected after submitting sketches of their proposals to the Mondriaan Fonds and a jury of art experts made the final choice. In total, 12 artists were invited to submit their ideas.
