Last year I visited my son in The Netherlands, where he is now studying and living. Having never been before I was able to behave like a complete tourist and visit a selection of the Art Galleries on offer in The Hague. One of them was the Panorama Mesdag, which features a huge 360 degree painting by Hendrik Willem Mesdag measuring 120 x 14 meters, yes, that’s meters, of the seaside resort of Scheveningen in 1881. I’m only posting a few of the photos I took there, for more views, please visit their website here which takes you on a journey around the full painting. You may notice the difference in the tone of the photos: when the sun shines outside the painting is bright but when the sun disappears the scene is grey and chilly. Amazing!
