The Mauritshuis in The Hague is world famous for being the museum where Vermeer's Girl with a Pearl Earring hangs. But it has much more to offer. The Mauritshuis houses a high-class collection of old paintings, with an emphasis on 17th-century Dutch art. Vermeer, Rembrandt, Rubens, Fabritius and Jan Steen are all on display. This rich collection is also housed in one of the finest examples of neo-classical architecture in the Netherlands.
This book describes the highlights of the Mauritshuis, the royal origins of the collection and the history of the building. It is like a visit to the Mauritshuis itself, travelling back in time to the Golden Age of Dutch painting.
Available in Dutch, English, German, French, Italian, Japanese and Chinese.
