Guided Tour Mauritshuis

Guided Tour of Dutch Masters from British Country Houses


By Jane Choy-Thurlow

This autumn there will be a special exhibit of Dutch 17th century paintings from English, 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. Although over time many owners were forced to sell works to raise funds, there are still many extraordinary paintings to be found in country houses today.

For this exhibition, the Mauritshuis has selected the most beautiful Dutch paintings from houses managed by the National Trust. This will be a first for the Mauritshuis: never before
has such a selection been exhibited in the Netherlands.
