Artists’s Bio: Robert Holmes received the Premio del Presidente/Città di Firenze and the Premio Lorenzo il Magnifico medal for an artist’s lifetime achievement at the fourth edition of the International Biennial of Contemporary Art in Florence, Italy in December 2003. More than 800 artists from 74 countries were selected based on the quality of their creative work and the cultural and ethnic values they represented. An international committee representing 37 countries selected the artists. Then, an international jury of nine eminent art critics, authors, art historians, and museum curators selected the actual pieces to receive awards in the Biennial exhibit.
