The Michael Barnaart van Bergen boutique has been specially adapted for the festive reopening of the Mauritshuis. In addition to a shop window with the Mondrian dress, space has been created for The Girl with the Pearl Earring by Johannes Vermeer. The store is located exactly on the route between the Mauritshuis and the Venduehuis. At this auction house the painting was sold for two guilders and thirty cents to Andries des Tombe. He donated the work to the museum after his death.
