During the total renovation and expansion of the Royal Picture Gallery Mauritshuis in The Hague, the work is on tour around the world in order to raise funds for the museum and will make its last stop in Italy – the only venue in Europe – before returning to it permanent resting place. Although the work has already been presented at the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum, at the deYoung Fine Arts Museum in San Francisco, at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta and the Frick Collection in New York, the exhibition in Bologna at the Palazzo Fava is the most comprehensive with almost 40 works on exhibit.
