Den Haag

and the most expensive painting that was never finished

Den Haag - The Gemeentemuseum in The Hague has a vast collection of modern art, and includes work from Kandinsky, Monet and Picasso. The museum is famous for its collection of Mondriaan paintings.

Victory Boogie Woogie

In the early years Dutch painter Piet Mondriaan (1872 - 1944) started painting flowers and landscapes. During his live the paintings developed into more abstract work. Mondriaan turned his landscapes into colored rectangles and black lines. His last painting Victory Boogie Woogie visualises the rhythm of the boogie woogie. The painting was never finished; Mondriaan died early in 1944, in New York. The painting has been acquired in 1988 by the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag for 37 million EURO. The museum shows the whole development of Mondriaan, from the Mill in Sunlight (1908) to the abstract Victory Boogie Woogie painting (1944), the most expensive painting that was never finished.
