Piet Mondrian. Depiction to Picture / Museum Ludwig, Cologne / Interview with Director Kasper König

From 14 Dezember 2007 to 30 March 2008 the Museum Ludwig Cologne presents one of the largest and foremost Mondrian collections in the world. It resides at the Gemeentemuseum in The Hague and traces the artist’s progress from his beginnings in Impressionism and Cubism to the founding of De Stijl, and on to his Neoplasticism.
In the entry hall to the exhibition “Piet Mondrian. Depiction to Picture” a 1:1 model has been set up of Mondrian’s Paris studio in the rue du Départ, where he lived and worked from 1921 to 1938. The studio was in the direct neighbourhood of the Gare de Montparnasse in a dilapidated-looking building. Our correspondent Thom de Bock spoke with Kasper König, Director of Museum Ludwig.
PS: The Museum Ludwig counted already more than 12.000 visitors during the first week of the show.
