The De Stijl movement was launched in Leiden exactly one hundred years ago. The Netherlands is poised to mark the centenary in 2017 with a year-long programme of events under the title Mondrian to Dutch Design. 100 years of De Stijl. Piet Mondrian is among the best-known artists involved in this international art movement. As the home both of the greatest Mondrian collection on Earth and of one of the world’s major De Stijl collections, the Gemeentemuseum will be at the forefront of festivities in 2017. Among other things, it plans to take the unprecedented and unique step of presenting its entire Mondrian collection – no fewer than 300 works – in a single, great retrospective.
