2017 year of Mondriaan to Dutch Design

Because the artists' movement De Stijl, with leading members such as Piet Mondriaan and Bart van der Leck, are celebrating their 100th anniversary next year, 2017 has been declared international theme year "Mondriaan to Dutch Design"

In honour of De Stijl artists, the Gemeentemuseum is organizing three unique exhibitions in 2017: Piet Mondriaan and Bart van der Leck, 300x Mondriaan: the Gemeentemuseum collection and The architecture and interiors of De Stijl. The Gemeentemuseum Den Haag is the definitive location for pausing to admire the influence of De Stijl on art, design and architecture in the 20th and 21st centuries; with 300 works the museum has the largest Mondriaan collection in the world. Moreover, the work of Mondriaan is hanging side-by-side with that of his contemporaries Van Doesburg, Gerrit Rietveld and Bart van der Leck from De Stijl in the permanent exhibition Mondriaan & De Stijl
