Mirror of the Soul. Toorop tot Mondriaan

Exhibition from January 14th until May 10th 2020

Around 1880 the rapid industrialisation of the Netherlands led to material prosperity and an explosive city growth spawned a dynamic urban culture. Yet a number of artists looked beyond the progress of the modern age and attempted to portray the inner life of the individual in their search for spirituality and reflection. Art was to be the mirror of the soul. This goal was also expressed in the form of new styles, from precise realism to stylisation, pointillism and luminism. Besides oils, artists also began to work in watercolour, gouache and  pencil. Personal symbols and hidden meanings created unprecedented images. What connected these artists was their belief in a shining future, in a society where men and women, workers and employers would be equal. This is also reflected in their art.

Though the dream died when the First World War broke out, the seed of a new art had already been sown.
