The Hall of Fame with the Voorhal at the end. In the middle of the gallery are several plaster casts drawn up, among other things a cast of Victoria, the image crowning the façade, made by the sculptor Francois Vermeylen. Hall of fame with adjacent cabinets, seen to the north. The decoration pattern as designed by Cuypers is fully elaborated here. The open keystones of the vaults' do a sparse light invade, so that the illumination of the four lateral halls on each side of the gallery and the Rembrandtzaal krachtiger schijnt' (De Stuers p.34) The murals were designed by Georg Sturm: 'Each drum field is dedicated to one of the provinces of the Empire, and outlines the meaning that each region for the Arts has had. In the middle a female figure which symbolically the art profession depicts, in which the province excels; on both sides, figures engaged in that profession; in the corners the coats of arms of the region and of the capital.' (for detailed information per province see De Stuers p. 34, 35) Cuypers used a combination of stones for the construction vaults and columns with wrought iron beams. In the decoration of the beams, assembled from pulled and forged iron, the construction is taken as a starting point. Making 'flanges and rivets' part of the decoration pattern. Granito floor with mosaic, for pattern see De Stuers afb. 12 figs B. The difference in level between the gallery and the cabinets is leveled in 1925.
