Vik Muniz: Verso

Mauritshuis, The Hague


The exhibition Vik Muniz: Verso reveals not the fronts of world famous paintings, like Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, Van Gogh’s Starry Night or Vermeer’s The Girl with a Pearl Earring, but their backs. For this exhibition, celebrated Brazilian artist Vik Muniz has created a total of five new works based on paintings in the Mauritshuis collection to augment his existing Verso series. Read more.
