Masterpieces from the Royal Picture Gallery Mauritshuis have arrived at Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum. Netherlands and Flanders in the 17th century saw many masters of art appear in succession. Little did they know that they would later become of great influence to the elaborate history of European art. In this exhibition, approximately 50 gems from Mauritshuis museum of Hague in the Netherlands will be introduced.

Undoubtedly, a must-see piece of work is Vermeer’s “Girl with a Pearl Earring”. She represents world famous Vermeer’s acclaimed work so distinctly. Another piece from Vermeer is “Diana and her nymphs”. There will be 6 magnificent pieces from Rembrandt, including one of his later works “Self Portrait”, a rare opportunity to see so many of his works at once. Other artists include Frans Hals, Rubens, Jan Brueghel the Elder and more. Don’t miss this breathtaking opportunity to indulge on the crème de la crème of Dutch art!
