The Mondriaanhuis at Kortegracht 11 in Amersfoort is the birth house of the world famous Dutch painter, Piet Mondriaan (1872-1944). He lived here with his family; father, mother, little Piet and three brothers and a sister, until 1880.
It is a small museum started in 1994 dedicated to his life and his works. This museum was re-opened again on 7 March 2017 completely innovated with seven exhibit rooms spread among 3 floors.
To get to know Mondriaan, visitors are led through to five of these rooms to learn out about his childhood, check out the highlights of his life chronologically, see his early paintings from 1899-1908, explore a life-sized reconstruction of his Paris studio, follow his artistic quest that led to the Victory Boogie Woogie and experience his changing style from realistic landscapes to abstract via a five-minute multi screens video presentation.
The museum also has an atelier and a room showcasing temporary exhibition.
The Mondriaanhuis offers an excellent insight into his Piet Mondriaan life. It is not about featuring his famous works, which there were none.
