Creating panaroma's was very hot in the nineteenth century and the Mesdag panorama is a striking example. One can see the beach area as it was 150 years ago. A kind of Google earth streetview avant la lettre.

An impressive panoramic painting, 114 meters wide and 14 meters high. The viewer feels an inseparable part of the picturesque scenery that overlooks the city of Den Haag and its coast, as it was painted in the 19th century by Mesdag, his wife and some...More
