Girl with Pearl Earring, goldfinch, are back home


This March 2013 video from the de Young museum in San Francisco, USA, is called Opening Day of Girl with a Pearl Earring: Dutch Paintings from the Mauritshuis.

Johannes Vermeer‘s famous seventeenth century painting Girl with a Pearl Earring had to leave the Mauritshuis museum in The Hague, as that museum was reconstructed.

Now, that painting and other famous paintings are back at the Mauritshuis. Which is reopening: twice the size it used to be.

This video from the Netherlands is called Mauritshuis museum to reopen in June [2014] after renovation.

This is a Dutch video of today, about the Mauritshuis reopening.

This video is called How a Dutch Master Made ‘The Goldfinch‘ Come Alive.

It is about another painting returned now to the Mauritshuis, The Goldfinch, by Carel Fabritius.

The painting recently got in the news because of the novel of the same name by Donna Tartt.

This video is called BBC: Donna Tartt shares The Goldfinch’s secret history.
