The Hague, De Stijl


The i(ndependent) reports,
"The Hague has unveiled the largest Mondrian work in the world. The painting with the familiar red, yellow and blue surfaces and straight lines is being exhibited at the Dutch town's City Hall as a prelude to a major show featuring all 300 Mondrian works which are normally loaned out to international museums.
Willem-Alexander, the King of the Netherlands, will open the exhibition which runs from 3 June to 24 September."

Missing Mondrians

It has all gone rather quiet on my little book.
The other British libraries did not request a copy and I have done nothing about the Library of Congress.

I have been occupied with other non-Mondrian projects, but I am inclined in the near future to send copies to the British libraries, stylishly-redacted copies to the LoC and then call it a day.

I did call into the V&A library recently to check that they still had it while researching Hepworth Square Forms.

Katy Perry

I have no idea who Katy Perry is, but she intersected with PM in 2014.


Here's a link.

It might be possible to identify the background using the Blackburn-Mondrian Index.
