Foreigners who visited Holland in the seventeenth century were astonished by the Dutch fondness for pictures. Economic, political, religious, and social circumstances created a unique and fruitful climate for the arts. A remarkable number of pictures of extraordinary quality were produced during the Dutch Golden Age. Get yourself introduced to painting of this era on the basis of some highlights of the Royal Picture Gallery of the Mauritshuis in The Hague.

Learn more of the variety of genres in painting that flourished in the Golden Age: still life, genre scenes, landscapes, portraits and history pieces.

And hear more about all the activities and exhibitions that you can visit in this special Rembrandt-year.
