The making of
Victory Boogie Woogie
A one day symposium on August 29, 2008
Gemeentemuseum Den Haag, the Netherlands

Conservators, scientists and art-historians worked together on the
extensive analyses of the Victory Boogie Woogie, the last painting
by Piet Mondrian. On August 29, 2008 the results of this examination
will be presented to an international audience.

The Dutch state acquired--in 1998--Victory Boogie Woogie, the last
painting by Piet Mondrian. recently the painting, part of the
collection of the Netherlands institute for cultural Heritage (icN)
and on permanent loan at the gemeentemuseum Den Haag, was
extensively investigated. on August 29, 2008 the results of this
examination will be presented to an international audience. During a
one day meeting, the integrated approach to the research of this
painting will be presented. the genesis of the painting in all its
intensely varied aspects, based on historical sources such as
letters, diaries, reports, magazine-articles and photographs will be
discussed.

A detailed overview will be given of the conservation and
restoration history and the reception of the painting. In addition,
a review of the scientific work with respect to the transatlantic
paintings will be given as well. The scientific research devoted to
the Victory Boogie Woogie includes non-destructive analysis by the
MoLAB team from eU-Artech, material analysis and microscopic
observations. Based on these results, we like to discuss different
reconstructed phases of the painting.

The meeting, financially supported by EU-Artech, will be jointly
organised by the Netherlands institute for cultural Heritage and the
gemeentemuseum Den Haag.

Registration for the meeting is free and will be handled on a
first-come, first-served basis. Participation is limited to 150
persons. At the end of May, the full programme of the meeting will
be sent to those who have registered.
