The collection of the Mauritshuis currently consists of approximately 800 paintings, 50 miniatures, 20 sculptures, and drawings and prints from Dutch masters from the fourteenth century onwards. The oldest part of the collection consists of the paintings owned in the 18th century by the stadholder, Prince Willem V of Orange-Nassau (1748-1806). In 1815 his son, King Willem I (1772-1843), handed over these paintings to the Dutch state, thus providing the basis of the Royal Cabinet of Paintings, now called the Royal Picture Gallery.
