> DESCRIPTION

A new exhibition studies the interwoven progress of the artistic movement De Stijl and Piet Mondrian, its leading figure. This important retrospective is the very first in France to shed light on this key moment in the history of 20th century art. Beginning towards the end of the century's first decade and continuing through the twenties, De Stijl combined an aesthetic and social vision, total art, which forms a basis for understanding the sources of modern art. In Paris between 1912 and 1938, Mondrian, a central figure of this avant-garde who drew from its experience, laid down a vocabulary and a "new abstract visual language", a radical undertaking which was to revolutionise painting and art, along with Theo Van Doesburg and Gerrit Rietveld, the other founders of this crossover movement which influenced painting, sculpture, city planning, architecture, furniture design and graphic design.
