Immerse into this extravagant exhibition boasting all documentary works focusing on the lifetime of Dutch painter Mondrian, most especially the portraits taken by different renowned photographers during his time.
Pieter Cornelis Mondriaan (changed to Mondrian) was first introduced to painting through his uncle Frits Mondriaan. When he wanted to be an artist, his father insisted to be a teacher first; and so, the artist studied by himself, both juggling two expertises. Around his 20's, he graduated, specializing on still life painting.
The extensive showcase is divided into four cities -- Amsterdam, Paris, London, and New York -- the cities which Mondrian developed and furthered himself as well as enabled him to revolutionize art. It has the largest collection of the artist -- from his paintings, letters, photographs, personal possessions, even his record collection.
Mondrian has been a favorite among the best portraitists -- André Kertész, Arnold Newman, Lisette Model, as well as Concrete Art pioneer Fritz Glarner.
For more information, visit the ongoing show The Discovery of Mondrian at the Gemeentemuseum in Haag. The show will close on September 4.

We've finally nailed down the basic colors from primary to secondary; now it's time to study other colors, hybrids, and palettes that make this world more complex and non-binary. We run in gradients, and in a geopolitical world, there's illusory utopia in pastels.
Photography as a medium evolved more than just as a way of documenting and capturing real life. It became an avenue for creation and release of fiction. In Erika Zolli's photography, she translates her cognitions into surreal images.
This talented Chicago-based artist and a freelance photographer amazed us with her work from the very start. Clarissa Bonet is inspired by the structures of the city, their impact on the body and she enjoys exploring aspects of the urban space in different contexts.
Color plays a huge but 'subtly-there' role in films. They give out the message and intention, the mood and feelings without being obvious. And David Fincher is no exception to manipulating our perception through his conflict-loving palettes.
Self-portraiture is synonymous to experimenting and getting to know one's self, it's a classic tradition of art history, but it never fails to be beautiful. And such is Rimel Neffati, who finds amusement within herself, through photography, red lipstick, masks, crowns, and flowers.
Film noir is one of the most unique and stylish genre of film that we all continue to love. Expressionistic in manner, yet pessimistic, fatalist and menacing, film noir isn't just about the dark and brooding.
