Frisian sculptor Pier Pander (1864-1919) was a celebrated artist in Rome. Pander is a representative of 19th century Academic Art, that was influenced by the French Académie des Beaux-Arts. Another Frisian member of this style is Sir Lawrence Alma-Tadema, a painter of special British denizenship.

In the Netherlands Pander is most famous for his portrait of Queen Wilhelmina (1880-1962), which was depicted on the Dutch currency of the day. Pander received this commission in honour of  Wilhelmina’s inauguration in 1898, as recognition of his status.
