This stunning book introduces readers to the Dutch Golden Age and its brilliant master painters, including Johannes Vermeer, Rembrandt van Rijn, Frans Hals, and Jan Steen, among others.

Housed in a splendid 17th-century palace in The Hague, the Royal Picture Gallery Mauritshuis is home to some of the world’s most beloved paintings — including Vermeer’s »Girl with a Pearl Earring« — and has become a destination for art enthusiasts from around the world. This engaging, accessible companion volume to a long-awaited exhibition guides readers through the highlights of the collection as if they were wandering the historic rooms themselves. A lavish plate section features 35 works, each accompanied by texts that explore its historical provenance and individual significance. Curatorial essays describe the building’s founder, Count Johan Maurits, and his experience as a Dutch colonist in the New World; the formation of the collection; and also recent discoveries about the materials and techniques employed by these great artists. Fans of Vermeer’s iconic masterpiece will delight in discovering that it is one of many beautiful artworks in the Mauritshuis’s elegant rooms.
