Virtual Mauritshuis

4 December 2020

While some museums are closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Apollo’s usual weekly pick of exhibitions will include shows at institutions that are currently open as well as digital projects providing virtual access to art and culture.

As the result of a long collaboration between the Mauritshuis and the company Madpixel, the museum in The Hague is the first in the world to be fully digitised in gigapixel format – meaning that its virtual tour, which can be accessed via its website or on Madpixel’s Second Canvas app, is viewable in greater resolution than any other. The brushstrokes and craquelure of the museum’s masterpieces by Vermeer, Rembrandt and others can now be experienced from afar as never before – while the 360-degree format means that the same can be said of the interior in which they are housed. Take the tour on the Mauritshuis’s website.
