The Mesdag Collection. The Mesdags at Home

Photos of a life devoted to art

In the presentation The Mesdags at Home in The Mesdag Collection in The Hague, former home of Hendrik Willem Mesdag and Sientje Mesdag-van Houten, some 20 photo reproductions provide an intimate picture of the couple’s life and work around a century ago. They were both professional painters, who also served on various committees, organised extravagant parties  and opened their studios to the cultural elite. The Mesdags displayed their art collection in their home and in one of the first museums for contemporary art, now The Mesdag Collection, which is managed by the Van Gogh Museum.
