Full description
Discover the magical illusion of the panorama of Hendrik Willem Mesdag in The Hague, the largest circular canvas in Europe.  Look 360º around you and experience the optical illusion created by this panorama of Scheveningen from 1881. Experience a view that is never the same: the incidence of light is more than magnificent and changes from moment to moment.  The vista of the sea, dunes, and old fishermen’s village Scheveningen was painted by H.W. Mesdag. Panorama Mesdag is a unique cultural-historical monument. Discover Scheveningen as it was in 1881. An artistic view of the picturesque fishing village from the 19th century, the emerging cosmopolitan beach life, and the encroaching city of The Hague is presented in a feast for the senses.

    Als kleines Mädchen habe ich die Mesdag ein paar Mal besucht, nach fast 70 Jahren gestern wieder. Ich bin fasziniert von den Strandszenen und dem Licht am Meer, die fließenden Übergänge vom Dünensand in das Meisterwerk. Sehr besonders, immer wieder. Die Ausstellung mit Mesdags „Seestücken“ - das bewegte Meer. Die Lichtstimmungen kann man auch heute noch entdecken.

    Ben nu 67, Kom al bij Panorama Mesdag vanaf mijn 10e jaar. Iedere keer is het weer geweldig om daar vrienden , Familie of bekenden mee naar toe te nemen en heel prettig om te zien hoe die mensen daar heel verbaast kijken naar dit prachtige 140 jaar oude beeld van de omgeving van Scheveningen en Den Haag.

    wist niet wat me te wachten stond, was geheel overdonderd door al dit moois en zo knap gedaan. Werkelijk genoten en raad het iedereen aan om dit minstens eenmaal te zien. we komen zeker nog een paar keer terug met andere weersomstandigheden. we hadden nu een prachtige zonnige dag.
