2015 Mesdag Year

This year, The Hague will be celebrating Mesdag’s 100-year-old cultural legacy. In the late 19th century, Mesdag put the city on the cultural map, both nationally and internationally. In addition to being a marine painter, Mesdag was an entrepreneur, collector, organiser, Mecenas, and an important source of inspiration for many painters from The Hague School. Since that time, Mesdag and the city of The Hague have been inextricably interwoven.

In 2015, several museums in The Hague will showcase the many faces of the city’s icon with a range of exhibitions, symposia and events. Panorama Mesdag, The Mesdag Collection, the Louis Couperus Museum, The Hague Municipal Archives, and Pulchri Studio have teamed up to make the Mesdag year a success.
