Mauritshuis

art museum in The Hague
English: The Royal Picture Gallery Mauritshuis is a museum in The Hague. The palace was built in the 17th century as personal residence by German prince Johan Maurits of Nassau-Siegen after he came home from Brazil where he had been governor of Dutch Brazil. The Mauritshuis was designed by the dutch architect Jacob van Campen. Just a few years later Johan Maurits moved out, since he was appointed by the Brandenburg king Frederic Wilhelm to become governor of Cleves.
Nederlands: Het Koninklijk Kabinet van Schilderijen Mauritshuis is een museum in Den Haag.
