Address book of Piet Mondrian
The page you see is part of the address book of Piet Mondrian (1872-1944) preserved in his archive. This unique personal archive was acquired by the RKD in January 2012. It contains letters, manuscripts, photographs, an address book, horoscope and other personal documents belonging to the artist. Together with the archive of Theo and Nelly van Doesburg the acquisition provides one of the most important archives covering modern Dutch art.
The archive will become available for public consultation at the RKD from mid 2012. The address book presented here is intended as a preview of the archive, and it allows us to take a peek into the artist’s personal life.
