H.R.H. Princess Maxima of the Netherlands is currently in Rome, Italy where she attended the opening of the L’Armonia Perfetta (Perfect Harmony) exhibition at the Complesso de Vittoriano Museum. This exhibit displays the works by Mondrian and Dutch contemporaries and:
… shows the development process of Mondrian (1872-1944). The famous and lesser known works range from strictly figurative (landscapes) through symbolism, cubism and abstract to the famous planes in primary colors. This trend is illustrated with works by other Dutch artists, predecessors and contemporaries, by whom Mondrian was inspired, like Jacoba van Heemskerk, Jan Toorop and Bart van der Leck.
After the viewing the exhibition Princess Maxima held a press conference whereupon she discussed all sorts of things. To view photos please click here and here.
