Highlights from the Mauritshuis

The Mauritshuis is an art museum in The Hague, Netherlands, known as a repository of Dutch Golden Age paintings. Its priceless collection includes works by Johannes Vermeer, Rembrandt van Rijn, Jan Steen, Paulus Potter, Frans Hals, Jacob van Ruisdael, and Hans Holbein the Younger, among others. The building was erected between 1636 and 1641 as a private home. The first art was displayed there in 1774, and in 1820, it was bought by the Dutch government to house the royal art collection. Since 1995, it has been operated by a private foundation. If you have dreamed of seeing the works of the Dutch Masters as they are today, but you can't get away to the Hague, take a short tour in this video from travel videographer Jason Jose. -via Nag on the Lake ā€‹
