Gecko and budgie galleries

For future reference, this is posted at the time of the coronavirus lockdown when museums and galleries were closed and most people stayed at home.
Hyperallergic reported that Jill Young in Dallas created a home gallery to entertain her pet gecko, comprising some fine gecko-themed pieces, including a Mondrian (possibly a B219). All © Jill Young.

[Apr24] There's more, again from Hyperallergic, this time for budgies etc. Also a gerbil and a tortoise but no PM seen with those.

Missing Mondrians

I sent a copy earlier this year to Marek Wieczorek, who asked for one. I recently found that Franseco Visalli is working on a similar project and so sent him a copy today. I have ordered five more from Lulu with no changes other than the publication details.

Feet Mondrian

Spotted in the National Portrait Gallery today. £9 per pair.

Deeply unimpressive.

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."
The image is one of several shown on hyperallergic
