Mondriaan in Amsterdam 1892–1912

This autumn the Amsterdam Museum reveals an unknown side of the world-famous artist Piet Mondriaan. In his youth the pioneer of abstract art lived and worked in Amsterdam for a long time. Mondrian in Amsterdam 1892–1912 examines the way the painter discovered his own style in and around the city—from the dark, realistic landscapes of his early years to his almost abstract rendition of the dazzling Mill in Sunlight (1908).

With this exhibition the Amsterdam Museum reveals an unknown side of the world-famous painter and artist Piet Mondriaan. In his youth this pioneer of abstract art lived and worked in different parts of the city of Amsterdam for a long time. ‘Mondriaan in Amsterdam 1892–1912’ examines the way the painter discovered his own style in and around the city—from the dark, realistic landscapes of his early years to his almost abstract rendition of the dazzling Mill in Sunlight (1908). 

This exhibition brings more than sixty of his works—most of them rarely shown—back to the city where they were painted a hundred years ago.
