About the Museum

Mondriaan Interior.jpg

Piet Mondriaan is world famous for his compositions with squares and primary colours. Less well-known is that he started his career as a painter in Winterswijk, where he lived from age 8 to 20. It is here that Piet Mondriaan discovered his passion for drawing and painting, and developed his talents to become one of the most important innovators of the visual arts. The former home of the Mondriaan family provided the basis for today’s museum and forms one wing of the museum’s building. In 2013, under the supervision of Wim van Krimpen (former director of the Gemeentemuseum The Hague and the Kunsthal in Rotterdam), Mondriaans parental home and the adjacent buildings were thoroughly renovated and opened to the public as Villa Mondriaan. Using modern media, Villa Mondriaan now tells the story of the artist’ life and work.
