The Collection

The old Collection page contained photographs dating from November 2001 to September 2002 showing of one of our walls containing a slowly developing collection of Mondriana. The Collection continued to change occasionally over the following years until 6th February 2011 when I took it down and boxed it up. I have been promised a wall in our next house when we eventually get around to moving and in the meantime the wall will be occupied by the copy of B301 I am currently working on.

Below are the wall in its denuded state and then the 2001 and 2002 photographs. All the elements of the Collection are shown on the Collection memorial page.

Some of the internal links have strayed over the years. I will gradually correct these.

'Dim collectionio' as we say in Wales, but its elements can be seen here.

The lampshade is up at last and the rehanging is now complete.

Recent acquisitions are the figurine wearing a Mondrian dress, a second necklace, the tiles (more to come) and the postcard versions of the Mondrian stamps.

The collection has undergone something of a rearrangement, with a more flexible hanging system and a new frame showing all the phone cards.
