In 2017 it will be 100 years ago that Theo van Doesburg established a journal called De Stijl to showcase the artistic philosophy of the Dutch art movement 'De Stijl". World-famous artists like Piet Mondrian, Gerrit Rietveld and Bart van der Leck were members of the avant-garde movement. The biggest Mondrian and De Stijl collection will be presented in the masterpiece of the architect who has been an enormous source of inspiration for many De Stijl artists: Berlage's Gemeentemuseum Den Haag.
