Descripción

BRAND NEW, Inside Out Victory Boogie Woogie: A Material History of Mondrian's Masterpiece, Maarten van Bommel, Hans Janssen, Ron Spronk, Saskia Wieringa, Victory Boogie Woogie, Mondrian's unfinished masterpiece created in 1942-44, has come to be regarded as not merely the high point of his oeuvre, but also as a dazzling icon of non-figurative art in the twentieth century. Although Mondrian did not live to give the painting its title, it is known that he regarded it as a development of his earlier work, Broadway Boogie Woogie. The work was acquired by the Dutch government in 1998 and has since been on permanent loan at the Gemeentemuseum in The Hague. Despite its landmark status in art history, Victory Boogie Woogie has never been studied in detail. This pioneering survey tracks the minute detail of the creation and physical appearance of the painting, delving into historical sources, conservation history and microscopic analysis of the paint surface and below.

Sinopsis:

An arresting piece in his signature primary color palette, The Victory Boogie Woogie is the final work by abstract painter Piet Mondrian (1872–1944). An important contributor to the De Stijl movement, Mondrian died before he could finish the painting, leaving swathes of unpainted canvas and many unanswered questions behind. Inside Out Victory Boogie Woogie is a pioneering study that carefully considers every aspect of the piece, from the tiniest detail in the physical painting to the minutiae of its conservation history. Through the methodical examination of this singular painting, the editors are able to offer a detailed and nuanced portrait of the artist himself and the rest of his oeuvre. From an exploration of Mondrian’s inspiration for the piece, to the sale of The Victory Boogie Woogie to the Dutch government in 1998 for nearly forty million dollars, which made it the most expensive painting ever bought in the Netherlands, this rich volume is a fully comprehensive history and analysis of what many consider one of the masterpieces of twentieth century abstract art.
