September 2017: Discovery of Mondriaan (Den Haag)

The Harvard Club of the Netherlands, in cooperation with the Columbia, MIT, Ox-Cam, and McGill clubs, has organised an exciting event not to be missed! From their website:

“Piet Mondrian is one of the Netherlands most celebrated and influential artists. The Harvard Club of the Netherlands and The Netherlands Fulbright Alumni Association have arranged not one but two private tours of the exhibition The Discovery of Mondrian (De Ontdekking van Mondriaan).

With the biggest and best collection of Mondrians anywhere in the world, the Gemeentemuseum is in a position to illustrate every stage of the artist’s amazing career in spectacular fashion. The journey will lead them to Amsterdam, Paris, London and New York – the great world cities where Mondrian could give free rein to his genius and make the discoveries that enabled him to revolutionize art.

Immediately following the tour participants will have the opportunity to enjoy a live jazz performance by the New European Ensemble in the Museum Garden (Tuinzaal).”

Date: Sunday 24 September, Meeting time: 13:30 hours in the main hall (the tour starts promptly at 13:45 hours)

Place: Gemeentemuseum Den Haag

Price: EUR 17.50 (or EUR 5.00 for Museum card holders)
