Panorama Mesdag, The Hague

4.6
Panorama Mesdag, a large cylindrical painting of a seaside town, gives the viewer an impression of being inside the landscape. Stand atop a sand dune and observe villagers at work, fishing boats docked on the seashore, and houses in the distance. Along with the realistic painting style, the feel of the place is augmented by the sand and beach objects placed below the painting on hilly terrain, making the illusion more striking. The piece was completed in 1881 by Mesdag, his wife, and his student painters.

  • Worth a visit! How much work the couple put into their paintings, it's pure love and passion! And the panorama painting is amazing.
  • This less visited museum is worth visiting, even if you have only 15 minutes. The panorama is so beautiful and quite uncomparable. Worth a stop especially if you have a museumkaart.
  • Loved this tourist attraction. The main attraction certainly does not disappoint. A must see!
  • Amazing painting representing Scheveningen in 1880. 1680 m², 120 long in the round 14 meter high. Very impressive
  • Impressive piece of art, precursor of digital VR. 3D immersion into Scheveningen dunes and surroundings. A must see!
