Winner of Mauritshuis Re-opening Competition Announced

In June 2014, Dr. Fukuoka starred in the award-winning re-opening campaign for the Mauritshuis. As part of the campaign, the museum ran a social media campaign inviting fans of the Girl with a Pearl Earring to submit images of themselves in the rooms in their home where they had hung their reproduction. The winner, Elsa Oudshoorn, has now become the second person, after Dr. Fukuoka, to have her room re-created in the Mauritshuis. You can watch a making-of video of Elsa’s room being recreated in front of the real Girl with a Pearl Earring here or see some photos on the Mauritshuis Facebook page.
