CCBB brings together works of the movement of modern Dutch avant-garde, known as De Stijl (The Style), which had as icon painter Piet Mondrian.
The CCBB will host the works of the Dutch artist Piet Mondrian, as well as other artistic manifestations inspired by the De Stijl magazine, in the exhibition “Mondrian and the De Stijl movement”. The modernist painter became known for his colorful rectangles and black lines that make up the picture “Composition With Large Red Plane, Yellow, Black, Gray And Blue” (1921), but his trajectory began 30 earlier, when he painted dark and dismal landscapes that characterized Dutch painting in the 19th century.
Together with colleagues like the visual artist Theo van Doesburg and the product designer Gerrit Rietvield, Mondrian collaborated with the publication De Stijl (“The Style”), which would go on to inspire an aesthetic movement titled Neoplasticism, which strongly influenced design, visual arts and poetry. The biggest part of the collection was given to the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag (Hague Municipal Museum), in Netherlands, and it is the most complete collection of this period ever displayed in Brazil.
