Huszár van De Stijl

May 20, 2017 – January 7, 2018

In the ‘100 years De Stijl’ year 2017 the Stadsmuseum Harderwijk is organizing a retrospective exhibition completely dedicated to the visual artist Vilmos Huszár (Budapest 1884 – Harderwijk 1960), one of the cofounders of the art movement De Stijl. From the 1930’s untill his death in 1960 he lived and worked in the village Hierden situated near to Harderwijk.

In 1917 Vilmos Huszár, together with Piet Mondriaan, Theo van Doesburg and Bart van der Leck, was one of the most prominent initiators of the art movement De Stijl, which gained worldwide attention. Shortly after the establishment he disconnected himself from the movement and went his own way.

Vilmos Huszár developed himself into a prominent painter, designer, sculptor, graphic designer, advertising designer and industrial designer. The Stadsmuseum Harderwijk will present a wide composed exhibition that displays this artistic versatility. Painting and other art objects from Huszárs time in Hierden will be exhibited as well as early work from his De Stijl period. The works come from private collections, the art collection of the city of Harderwijk and the collections of several museums, among which the Stadsmuseum Harderwijk itsself. A number of paintings, which are privately owned, have never been exhibited before.

Sjarel Ex, director of Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, is an art historian and a Vilmos Huszár expert. At the request of the Stadsmuseum Harderwijk he will cooperate at composing the exhibition as a guest curator.

A book about Vilmos Huszár and his life and work in Hierden will also be available.

The exhibition in the Stadsmuseum Harderwijk can be seen from May 20, 2017 until January 7, 2018.
