The Panorama of Scheveningen
The Panorama of Scheveningen was painted in 1881 by Hendrik Willem Mesdag for the panorama company Société Anonyme du Panorama Maritime de la Haye. With the help of painters from the Hague School – Blommers, De Bock, and Breitner and his wife Sientje Mesdag-van Houten – Mesdag painted a seascape with a circumference of 120 meters and a height of 14 meters. Location: the Seinpostduin, then the highest dune in Scheveningen.

On August 1, 1881, the panorama was opened. Vincent van Gogh also stood on the Belvedere at the opening and admired the panorama from this place. He said: “…The only thing that is wrong with the Panorama of Scheveningen is that there is nothing wrong…”.
