The Discovery of Mondrian

Gemeentemuseum, The Netherlands

NOW CLOSED

During the summer of 2017, the Gemeentemuseum will take visitors on an extensive tour of the life and work of Piet Mondrian. The journey will lead them to Amsterdam, Paris, London and New York – the great world cities where Mondrian could give free rein to his genius and make the discoveries that enabled him to revolutionize art. One of three special exhibitions, ‘The Discovery of Mondrian’ will display the museum’s 300-strong collection of Mondrians simultaneously – the biggest and best collection of Mondrians anywhere in the world. The show will also include letters, photographs and personal possessions – such as the artist’s record collection– and a life-size reconstruction of Mondrian’s Parisian studio. Find out more about the ‘Discovery of Mondrian’ exhibition from the Gemeentemuseum’s website.
