The Mauritshuis has conducted extensive art historical and technical research into its collection of Dutch and Flemish genre paintings in recent years. The ensuing discoveries and insights have been incorporated into the new English-language catalogue, Genre Paintings in the Mauritshuis. This lavishly illustrated book can be considered as a new standard reference work on Dutch and Flemish genre painting. It is the third in the museum’s series of academic collection catalogues. The world-renowned collection of the Mauritshuis comprises more than a hundred Dutch and Flemish genre pieces, with masterpieces by specialists such as Jan Steen, Frans van Mieris, Gerard ter Borch, Clara Peeters, Adriaen van Ostade, Gabriël Metsu, Gerrit Dou and David Teniers.
