The royal picture gallery in The Hague, opened to the public in 1820. The building, designed by Jacob van Campen in 1633 as a palace for Count Johan Maurits of Nassau-Siegen (Maurice of Nassau), is one of the masterpieces of Dutch architecture. It houses one of the world's choicest collections of 17th-century Dutch painting (with pictures also from the 15th, 16th, and 18th centuries), including such celebrated works as Rembrandt's Anatomy Lesson of Dr Tulp and Vermeer's View of Delft.
