Gemeentemuseum Den Haag

The collection of Modern Art of the Municipal Museum offers an overview of Dutch art since the early 19th century, supplemented by characteristic examples of art that originated in other countries during the same period. Collective cores are: The Hague School, Symbolism around 1900, the artists around The Style and the Bauhaus and Expressionism.

The Gemeentemuseum The Hague features paintings by Piet Mondriaan, Pablo Picasso, Theo van Doesburg, Bart van der Leck, Charley Toorop, Claude Monet and Francis Bacon. After the great New Babylon overview exhibition in 1974, the museum also bought a large part of the New Babylon works by Constant Nieuwenhuijs.

The museum owns the largest collection of paintings and drawings of Mondrian in the world. This is mainly due to the collector Sal Slijper, who after his death in 1971 left a large number of works of Mondriaan - mainly from his figurative period - at the museum. Furthermore, the museum has Mondrian's last painting, Victory Boogie Woogie, a donation from The Dutch Bank of 1998.
