Panorama Mesdag is a cylindrical painting of about 14 meters high with a circumference of 120 meters. The painting, one of the oldest 19th century panorama in the world, has a view over the North Sea, the dunes, The Hague and Scheveningen. It was painted in 1881 by Hendrik Willem Mesdag, a famous painter of the Hague School. He specialized in painting seascapes. His wife Sientje Mesdag-van Houten and the painters Theophile de Bock, George Hendrik Breitner and Bernard Blommers have also contributed significantly. http://www.panorama-mesdag.com/
