The Royal Painting Cabinet Mauritshuis is housed in one of Holland's most outstanding classicist buildings. Its location next to the Binnenhof on the Hofvijver pond, its intimate character and the exceptional quality of its collection make the Mauritshuis a favorite destination for its many visitors. The Mauritshuis is mostly celebrated for its world famous collection of Dutch masterpieces from the seventeenth century. Paintings by Rembrandt, Jan Steen, Carl Fabritius, Frans Hals, Potter, Ruisdael and numerous other masters from the Golden Age form the core of the collection, which also features paintings from the Flemish sixteenth and seventeenth century, and works by Rubens, Van Dyck and Jordaens. Other than the Girl with a Pearl Earring, the Mauritshuis also housesthe early Diana and Her Companions and the magnificent View of Delft by Vermeer.
