At Home in Holland: Vermeer and his Contemporaries from the British Royal Collection
Mauritshuis, The Hague
2016
The Royal Collection, held in trust by H. M. Queen Elizabeth II, contains highlights from the oeuvres of Dutch painters.

The exhibition design could have a grandeur and a certain elegance without being a copy of the Buckingham Palace. We choose for a minimalistic design: stylized arches, and intimate niches. The visitors can look at the paintings individually but also compare them with each other.

An audio visual over the collection is to be seen in a cube situated in the Atrium. One closed side serves for the introduction text, the other one for a flatscreen.
