“This cooperation fits our theme well,”

The world famous Girl with a Pearl Earring  by Johannes Vermeer and Jacoba van Beieren, who symbolizes the heritage of Keukenhof, herald a colourful spring. They represent the cooperation between Keukenhof and the Mauritshuis. “This cooperation suits our theme well,” explains Keukenhof director Bart Siemerink.

Flowers are classic symbols used in the arts for centuries

In 2022, the flower exhibition’s theme will be ‘Flower Classics’. Siemerink: “Flowers are classic symbols used in the arts for centuries. As is apparent in several works on view at the Mauritshuis. Replicas of a number of these will be on show at Keukenhof for visitors to admire.”

From 24 March 2022 onwards, there will be a special Mauritshuis inspirational garden at Keukenhof which will feature a replica of Johannes Vermeer’s most famous painting, ‘Meisje met de parel’. The impossible bouquet, consisting of flowers that all bloom at different times of the year, will also be brought to life!

One of the highlights of the anniversary year will be the exhibition “in full bloom”

In 2022, the Mauritshuis will celebrate its 200th anniversary as a public institution throughout the year with a series of special exhibitions. One of the highlights of the anniversary year will be the exhibition ‘in full bloom’.

Martine Gosselink, the Director of the Mauritshuis: “Can’t we do this every year? Mauritshuis and Keukenhof are such logical partners, richer colours can’t be found anywhere else! The best of Dutch painting and the strongest colours in nature are only 30 km apart. A perfect day out on a beautiful spring day.”
