People look at paintings during a press preview of an exhibition called "Dutch Self-Portraits - Selfies of the Golden Age",  at the Mauritshuis museum in The Hague, Wednesday Oct. 7, 2015. These days, anybody with a smartphone can snap a selfie in a split second. Back in the Golden Age of Dutch painting, they were called self-portraits and were the preserve of trained artists who thought long and hard about every aspect of such a painting. Now the museum is staging an exhibition focusing solely on these 17th Century self-portraits that highlights the similarities but also the significant differences between modern-day snapshots and historic works of art.
