The Mauritshuis is one of the emblematic monuments of The Hague. It hosts paintings from the most reknowned Dutch artists in the world such as Vermeer, Rembrandt, Frans Hals. The monument was build between 1633-1644 as the residence of count Johan Maurits van Nassau-Siegen and is a typical example of the classicism style in The Netherlands at that period, very much inspired by the Italian architecture.

Beautiful building. I'm so glad it continues to be used. Of course, in your country, you probably never let old buildings fall out of use, and thus decay. Which is wonderful.

As to your comment in my photo blog... First, thank you so much for commenting. And second, these "McMansions" are not just normal homes. Yes, they are homes. But they are built as show places. And I myself, think they are too much. -sigh-

But if one has the money, they can build whatever they want to.
