The Gemeentemuseum, built in 1935, is renowned as an Art Deco masterpiece of the celebrated Dutch architect H P Berlage. It is home to the world’s largest collections of works by Piet Mondrian and De Stijl, and a rich collection of 20th century art.
With almost 300 works, the Gemeentemuseum’s Mondrian collection is unique in the world. Every phase in the impressive career of this master of modern art is documented alongside the world’s widest collection of works from De Stijl, bringing together the most important representatives of this forward thinking school of art and design: Theo van Doesburg, Huszár, Bart van der Leck, J.J.P. Oud, Gerrit Rietveld and Georges Vantongerloo.
The Gemeentemuseum’s rich collection of 20th century art includes iconic masterpieces by Claude Monet, Pablo Picasso, Wassily Kandinsky, Francis Bacon, Louise Bourgeois and Sol Lewitt, as well as noted collections of 20th century fashion and design, art nouveau and art deco. While the contemporary collection includes works by artists such as Panamarenko, Marlene Dumas, Frank Stella and Daniel Richter, the domestic splendour of past centuries is presented in a unique display of rare blue Delft pottery, and glass work from classical antiquity right through to the present day.
GEM, the Museum for Contemporary Art, specialising in developments of Dutch and international contemporary art, and the Museum of Photography are located in the museum’s modern pavilion building adjacent to the original Art Deco complex. GEM will be hosting the Vincent Award 2014 exhibition until February 2015.
