Star Works Set the Tone for the 32nd PAN Amsterdam


A recently discovered work by Piet Mondrian (1872-1944) can be seen at this year’s PAN Amsterdam. Willem de Winter, the well-known presenter of the TV programme ‘Tussen Kunst en Kitsch’ and owner of Kunsthandel E.J. Wisselingh & Co recognized theMondrian during an appraisal. It is a 1901 portrait of Elisabeth Sophia Maria Cavalini (1873-1933) from Mondrian’s realistic period. The painting, measuring 73 x 53 cm, was previously unknown, has never been shown before and is not described in any catalogue raisonné.

The painting is now on the market and on view to the public for the first time. It is rare for new works to be added to Mondrian’s oeuvre.
