An error in the location of the painting by Piet Mondrian was noticed by the museum's curator Suzanne Meyer-Buser. However, she did not begin to outweigh the picture, fearing for its safety.
A painting by the Dutch abstract artist Piet Mondrian called New York City I has been hanging upside down in the exposition of the Museum of Modern Art in Dusseldorf for 75 years. The Guardin writes about this.
The museum curator Susanne Meyer-Büser noticed a mistake in exhibiting the art canvas.
Meyer-Buser drew attention to the order of the strips glued to the canvas. They showed that the artist had to glue the tape from the bottom up. But this technique is difficult to perform. Therefore, the art critic came to the conclusion that the canvas was once hung upside down on a stand.
If we consider that the painting was first presented to the public in 1945, we can assume that the canvas hung in the wrong position for 74 years. However, despite this, museum staff will not touch the painting.
“There is a risk of damaging the work by hanging it in its original position,” Meyer-Buser explained the situation.
New York City I : what kind of canvas is this
This is an abstract geometric composition with multi-colored strips of adhesive tape glued on top of each other. Piet Mondrian used stripes of blue, yellow, red and black ribbon for his artistic canvas.
The canvas was created in 1942.
Like most of Mondrian's works, it is made in an abstract style.< /p>
