De Stijl postage stamps

As part of the celebrations of ‘100 Years of De Stijl: Mondrian to Dutch Design’, Het Nieuwe Instituut and PostNL have issued a set of De Stijl postage stamps. The sheet of stamps has been designed by PutGootink (René Put and Brigitte Gootink) and is based on images from the collections of Het Nieuwe Instituut and the Gemeentemuseum in The Hague.


This year, hundreds of pieces from the collection of Het Nieuwe Instituut are being loaned to other museums for exhibitions celebrating the centenary of De Stijl. Het Nieuwe Instituut’s partners include Kunsthal KAdE in Amersfoort (The Colours of De Stijl), EYE Museum (during the Berlinale and the Cannes Film Festival) and the Centraal Museum in Utrecht (Rietveld’s Masterpiece: Long Live De Stijl!). Through its loans to these exhibitions, Het Nieuwe Instituut is contributing to the mobility of the nation’s art collections, a subject that is high on the agendas of the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science and the Museums’ Association.
