By the Sea – Jan Toorop, Piet Mondriaan and Jacoba van Heemskerck
In the early 20th century, the coast of Zeeland exerted a magical pull on artists. Domburg, in particular, would see a steady procession of painters in the summer who were inspired by the landscape and the phenomenal, bright light. With more than fifty paintings, the exhibition promises to take the visitor on a delightful journey through a beautiful part of the Netherlands.
12 October 2019 - 2 February 2020
We all know about them, of course. The garden paintings of French Impressionist Claude Monet (1840-1926) are famous around the world. But how many of us have seen the actual canvases, with their explosions of colour? The last major Monet exhibitions in the Netherlands were held back in 1952 at the Gemeentemuseum and in 1986 at the Van Gogh Museum. In fact, many of Monet’s renowned garden paintings have never been seen in the Netherlands at all. High time, we think, for a great tribute at the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag.

Dutch paintings from National Trust Houses
English country houses have traditionally been the home to Dutch Golden Age masters. Most of these paintings were acquired in the eighteenth century, the heyday of the English country house. For this exhibition, The Mauritshuis selected the most beautiful Dutch paintings from houses managed by the National Trust.

Rembrandt & The Golden Age
In 2019, it is 350 years ago that one of our most famous painters, Rembrandt van Rijn, passed away. This is why his paintings and those of his contemporaries are a national theme for a year. As one of the most important exhibits in light of this anniversary, the Mauritshuis displays a collection of world-famous paintings by Dutch and Flemish masters from the Golden Age, including the sixteen Rembrandts owned by the museum. These are world-famous works such as ‘The Anatomy Lessor by Dr. Nicolaes Tulp, ‘Saul and David’, ‘Song of Simeon’ and three magnificent self-portraits.
17 October 2019 - 19 January 2020
The Mauritshuis has a world-famous collection of paintings by Dutch and Flemish masters of the Golden Age. In the autumn of 2019 there will be an exhibition highlighting work by one of Rembrandt’s most talented pupils: Nicolaes Maes.
