Rebuilding the Mauritshuis by Emilie Gordenker
The Mauritshuis is an extraordinary museum that combines a small but outstanding collection of Dutch paintings of the Golden Age with the spectacular setting of a seventeenth-century residence situated in the heart of The Hague. The Mauritshuis is perhaps best known as the home of Vermeer’s Girl with a Pearl Earring, but contains many other treasures as well. The museum reopened in June 2014 after an extensive renovation and expansion. This lecture offers a brief outline of the history of the collection and the building in which it is displayed, reveals the secrets behind the building project, and sets out the museum’s ambitious plans for the future.
Conversation with the Speaker and Maria Mok, Hong Kong Museum of Art
After the lecture, Maria Mok, curator of the Hong Kong Museum of Art will join the spaker for a conversation and Q&A with members of the audience.
About the Speaker:
Dr. Emilie E.S. Gordenker is an art historian with a doctorate in seventeenth-century Dutch and Flemish painting from the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University. She has been director of the Mauritshuis since 2008.
