For the first time a Milano comes an exhibition entirely dedicated to the Dutch artist Piet Mondrian and his artistic evolution which led him from figuration to abstraction, up to his unique style which made it unmistakable all over the world.
The exhibition entitled Piet Mondrian. From figuration to abstraction will be held from 24 November 2021 to 27 March 2022 at the MUDEC – Museum of Cultures. Made thanks to the collaboration of Art Museum The Hague, which houses the most important collection of Mondrian’s works in the world, and which has lent sixty works, selected from those by Mondrian and other representative artists of the Hague School, the exhibition is curated by Daniel Koep, Head of Exhibitions, e di Doede Hardeman, Head of Collections, with the concept of the director of the Kunstmusem Benno Temple. The exhibition itinerary also presents other masterpieces from important museums and private collections, and winds through different thematic sections. The common thread on which the comparison between the works of the early figurative period and those of the abstract period is defined is that of landscape: a visual and immediate key to the stylistic evolution of the artist, useful for understanding the abstract works of his last period. A section of the exhibition is also dedicated to The style (O Neoplasticism), the movement born in the Netherlands in 1917 on the initiative of Mondrian himself and Theo van Doesburg and still active in the thirties, which innovated art, architecture and design.
