    And that’s exactly what we did one Sunday afternoon that felt a little more like spring than summer, but the brisk winds only drove us more quickly into the hospitable home of baker du jour Nathalie.

    What a great post! If you want to try making your own modern art desserts, we’d recommend that you snag the cookbook from our MuseumStore’s website :)

And then there was Mondrian (March 7, 1872 - 1944) - who went from being a quasi-Victorian figure to being a complete De Stijl Modernist when he utterly gave up on representation as a principle in art. Instead he evolved a non-representational form which he termed Neo-Plasticism, consisting of a grid of vertical and horizontal black lines and the use of the three primary colours…

On the occasion of the artist’s birthday, we will probably reblog any and all things Mondrian-inspired (of which, we know, there are many) :)
