Mondrian Portraits

The plan is to show here all the Mondrian self-portraits, all those drawn by other artists (I am aware of two) and many of the photographs.

For now a few to go on with.

From the 2011 Pompidou catalogue, this is (allowing for my rudimentary translation skills), a letter from Gerard Hordijk to Rien Van Damme showing Mondrian dancing in 26 rue du Départ.

On the left is a diagram of where to find Modrian's apartment (the second photograph shows the building) and on the right the interior with the stove and gramophone recognisable (the third photograph shows the reconstruction at the Pompidou exhibition).
