The Royal Picture Gallery Mauritshuis combines a truly great collection of Dutch and Flemish paintings with the spectacular setting of a seventeenth-century city palace in the historic center of The Hague. This lecture will trace the history of the Mauritshuis’s collection and the building that houses it, and will offer a behind-the-scenes view of the current renovation and expansion of the museum.
This lecture coincides with the exhibition Vermeer, Rembrandt, and Hals: Masterpieces of Dutch Painting from the Mauritshuis.
