Mauritshuis designed by Studio Dumbar

Monogram and print with metallic paper and spot colour detail designed by Dumbar for Mauritshuis

Mauritshuis is an art museum and state-owned building constructed in the 17th century and located in The Hague. The building is described as being a fine example of Dutch Classicist architecture. It was formerly the residence of count John Maurice of Nassau and has been home to the Royal Picture Gallery since 1822. Today it houses a plethora of Golden Age masterpieces, including works by Rembrandt, Jan Steen and Vermeer.
