Brussels’s BOZAR might have had a fake Mondrian on show last year

From February through May 2016, Brussels’ Centre for Fine Arts (BOZAR) has allegedly featured a 1923 Mondrian painting (Untitled) whose authenticity has been called into question by Mondrian expert Léon Hanssen.  

The work, loaned by the Stedelijk Museum to the Brussels institution, was donated to the Amsterdam museum by a Swiss collector. According to Hanssen, however, the owner of the painting has allegedly provided different accounts of the work’s origin. In addition, research on the work has shown significant differences between the painting and historical photographs. More via BX1.
