Grounded: the great art treasures that no longer go out on the road

Apparently some things can still be grounded, no matter what age. The famous Girl With A Pearl Earring piece has returned home to the Mauritshuis royal picture gallery in The Hague, and will be there forever. This piece among a few others, are deemed to be too fragile and/or too precious to be traveling around the world. Visitors, tourists and art fanatics will have to travel to one place in order to see this famous masterpiece.

Other works that are grounded to one place are Botticelli’s Birth of Venus, Las Meninas by Velazquez, and Picasso’s Guernica.
