Working Visit: Meudon and the Centre Pompidou in Paris

Last week, programme manager Gijs Broos, project leader Elza van den Berg and collection manager Huub Breuer, together with Herre de Vries of restoration studio RNA, paid a working visit to the former studio home of Nelly and Theo van Doesburg in Meudon. They talked to the architect carrying out the restoration work on Meudon, for which extensive use was made of the National Collection’s Van Doesburg archive for the colour analysis. Knowledge was exchanged about the restoration and conservation of the archive material with the Centre Pompidou, which acquired part of the Van Doesburg collection after Nelly’s death in 1975. The visit was recorded by filmmaker Marit Geluk as part of a documentary that will be released in 2022 about how Het Nieuwe Instituut, as a heritage institution, deals with the National Collection and in particular with the Theo van Doesburg collection.
