Huszár van de Stijl
In the ‘100 Years of The Style’ Year 2017, the City Museum Harderwijk organizes an exhibition dedicated to visual artist Vilmos Huszár (Budapest 1884 – Harderwijk 1960), one of the founder of the art movement De Stijl. From the thirties he lived and lived in Hierden village near Harderwijk.

With Piet Mondriaan, Theo van Doesburg and Bart van der Leck, Vilmos Huszár was one of the prominent initiators of the world-famous art movement De Stijl in 1917. Not long after the establishment, he already made himself out of The Style, he went his own way.

Vilmos Huszár developed into a distinctive painter, draftsman, sculptor, graphic designer, advertising designer and industrial designer. The Stadsmuseum Harderwijk presents a wide-ranging exhibition that shows this artistic versatility. There are paintings and other art objects from Huszár exhibited from his heroic time. The works are from private collections, the collection of collections of the municipality of Harderwijk and collections of some museums including the Stadsmuseum Harderwijk itself. A number of paintings, which are privately owned, have never been exhibited.

Sjarel Ex, director of Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen is art historian and Vilmos Huszár expert. He advises, at the request of the Harderwijk City Museum, as a consultant in the composition of the exhibition.

At the exhibition there will be a book about Vilmos Huszár and his life and work in Hierden. The exhibition in the Harderwijk City Museum can be seen from 20 May 2017 to 7 January 2018.
The Mondriaanhuis in Amersfoort
The Mondriaanhuis is the birth house of Piet Mondrian and a museum experience for young and old alike. The Mondriaanhuis in Amersfoort is the birth house of Piet Mondrian (1872-1944). Piet Mondrian was born and spent his childhood here.
After the Mondrian family departed, for a long time there was nothing on this spot that reminded of the world famous painter, until architect Leo Heiderijk and his wife Cis made it into the Mondriaanhuis in 1994 and opened it to the public. From late 2016 onward, the Mondriaanhuis was temporarily closed due to an extensive reorganisation.
On 7 March 2017 the completely innovated museum was reopened.
Together with Kunsthal KAdE, Museum Flehite and Architecture Centre FASadE, the Mondriaanhuis is part of Stichting Amersfoort in C. Stichting Amersfoort in C has a cultural ANBI status. Enjoy pictures from Amersfoort and the Mondriaanhuis in Holland.

Red, yellow and blue – the three primary colours have become synonymous with the art movement known as De Stijl.

But that single iconic colour combination has tended to mask the reality of the diversity of ideas advanced by its various members.

At the end of the day, Piet Mondrian, Theo van Doesburg, Bart van der Leck, Gerrit Rietveld, Georges Vantongerloo and Vilmos Huszár all formulated their own individual views on colour.
