App Second Canvas Mauritshuis

Dutch Art

HE HAGUE, 10 November 2016 - As of today a brand new app, Second Canvas Mauritshuis, renders Vermeers Girl with the Pearl Earring and ‘The Garden of Eden’ by Brueghel and Bosch to zoom in on the brushstrokes of the paintings in Gigapixel. This is the first app in the world to offer Gigapixel integrated infrared images, which take users below the surface a painting revealing to layers and millimeter-sized details that are not normally visible to the naked eye. The Mauritshuis has joined forces with an innovative digitisation company, Madpixel, to bring part of the collection to a broader audience in an entirely new way.

‘Second Canvas Mauritshuis’ takes users on a voyage of digital discovery through a selection of the museum's masterpieces and introduces the artworks in an interactive way. It harnesses high resolution technology to zoom in on the brushstrokes, thereby revealing a level of detail in famous paintings that are otherwise invisible. It features an audio tour, which directs the eye to important aspects of the work, and can also be used to share the details directly via social media. Next to the Girl with the Pearl Earring by Vermeer and ‘The Garden of Eden’ by Brueghel and Bosch, the app presents eight other works of the Mauritshuis collection by Rembrandt, Rubens, Brueghel, Avercamp, Steen and others in high-resolution.
Practical Information
The ‘Second Canvas Mauritshuis’ app is downloadable from the App store and Google Play at a cost of €1.99. It is available in English and Dutch, for iPad, iPhone, Android and AppleTV.

Mauritshuis
The Mauritshuis is home to the Best of Dutch painting from the Golden Age. The compact, yet world-renowned collection, is situated in the heart of The Hague, right next to the government centre. Masterpieces such as
Vermeer's Girl with a Pearl Earring, The Anatomy Lesson of Dr. Nicolaes Tulp by Rembrandt, The Goldfinch by Fabritius and The Bull by Potter are on permanent display in the intimate rooms of this seventeenth-century monument. More than two hundred top works from Dutch and Flemish masters are on display in the historic yet intimate interior, with its silken wall covering, sparkling chandeliers and monumental painted ceilings. Genre paintings by Jan Steen, landscapes by Jacob van Ruisdael, still lifes by Adriaen Coorte and portraits by Rubens offer a rich and varied representation of the best of seventeenth-century Dutch and Flemish painting.
