Crown Fine Art successfully moves the Vermeer masterpiece Girl with a Pearl Earring

(lifePR) (Amsterdam, ) .
- On June 19, 2014, Crown Fine Art, the world's first integrated, international fine art logistics supplier, handled the transportation and installation of Johannes Vermeer's masterpiece, Girl with a Pearl Earring.

The painting, which uses a pearl earring as a focal point, has been a part of a collection in the Mauritshuis gallery since 1902.

The gallery, which is based in The Hague, has spent the last two years renovating its magnificent, seventeenth century, building - including connecting an adjacent building and doubling its exhibition space.

During this time, the heart of the collection and one of the most iconic works of art in the Netherlands, Vermeer's Girl with a Pearl Earring, traveled across the world, accompanied by a number of other important artworks.

Over the last two years, Crown Fine Art has taken care of packing, crating and shipping the traveling exhibition. Crown's team of experts has now collected all the works of art and brought them back to their newly-renovated home, solving some very difficult problems along the way!

On June 19, the Mauritshuis hung Girl with a Pearl Earring back on its wall, assisted by Crown Fine Art's specialist care and expertise.

The museum has now reopened to the public.
