Piet Mondrian (1872-1944) was a man of boundless ambition. He made himself one of the greatest masters of modern art and resolutely pioneered the path towards abstraction. In January 1912 he moved to Paris to explore Cubism. In June 1914 he returned and held an exhibition at the Walrecht gallery in The Hague; it showed just how far Mondrian had travelled from the Dutch art of his time in those two short years. He became a major source of inspiration for other Dutch artists, including Jan Sluijters, Jacoba van Heemskerck and countless younger painters. Exactly 100 years after the show at the Walrecht gallery, the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag presents this centenary exhibition as a homage to Mondrian. Its opening coincides almost to the day with the 70th anniversary of the artist’s death. In addition to work by Mondrian and his Dutch contemporaries, the show will feature works by Pablo Picasso, Georges Braque, Le Fauconnier and Fernand Léger, on loan from a raft of top museums such as MoMA in New York and the Beyeler in Basle.
