Press Release

Following a two-year restoration, the stunning Mauritshuis in the Hague has now reopened with the galleries illuminated using Light Projects’ specially designed ArtLED fitting.
We’re delighted Light Projects is now lighting some of the most famous works of art in the world. From Vemeer’s ‘Girl with a Pearl Earring’ through to Rubens and Rembrandt, the ArtLED is used to help create wonderfully atmospheric galleries - dramatically lit in a scheme by Hans Wolff lighting design.
And, if you don’t want to take our word for it …………
Renowned BBC Art’s Editor, Will Gompertz comments, “The Mauritshuis renovation and new extension has been elegantly executed. The paintings are hung against a variety of wallpapers befitting the building's 17th Century design, and benefit from some excellent 21st Century lighting, provided by the English firm Light Projects Group”.

Mark Hudson, writing for the Daily Telegraph comments, “The damask wall coverings have been replaced, many in a deep and sumptuous blue. I’m informed that the lighting has been vastly improved, but as the essence of good lighting is that you don’t notice it, I’ll take their word on that!”
