Mauritshuis, home of the pearl earing and a wonderful place to see.

Like The Wallace Collection, the Mauritshuis in the Hague has a very special atmosphere, rather more intimate than cosy, paintings are presented beautifully, not too dark, not too many in one spoonful, well chosen together and we often had the room empty of other visitors.

It was lovely to see 'education in action' before the "Girl With The Pearl Earing" and I was able to get a clear shot of it soon after.

The Mauritshuis was the highlight of our visit to Holland and it will be interesting to compare it to our impending visit to Italy. I will report back here.
PS But not much sculpture inside!
