I was able to get a few photos of the Mauritshuis museum during a short walk this week. What do you think of the Christmas tree?
Mauritshuis is most known for Vermeer’s The Girl with a Pearl Earring. You can see a homage to this behind the right pillar in the image – but it is not exactly the painting, either. It is a digital display where the head and outfit change slightly every few seconds.
As you can see above, now the photo is of someone else with a blue cap instead of a headscarf.
You can also visit the museum virtually via this link (it is like Google Map’s Street View).
And a fun bit of news, an article from indebuurt.nl about the many face masks The Hague’s new mayor wears: De vele verschillende mondkapjes van de Haagse burgemeester Jan van Zanen.
