Activities Today we have visited two interesting museums in The Hague. The Art Museum and the MC Escher Museum.

We have seen world-famous paintings like the anatomy lesson by Rembrandt, View of Delft by Vermeer (unfortunately The Girl With the Pearl Earring is currently travelling in Japan and the US).
The Anatomy Lesson of Dr Nicolaes Tulp

There were lots of paintings by Piet Mondrian too. He was a pioneer in abstraction employing an irregular checkerboard drawn with black lines, and with the spaces paints mostly white or sometimes in the primary colors of blue, red and yellow.
