victory boogie woogie
“the only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.” ― Jack Kerouac
Victory Boogie Woogie is the last, and unfinished painting of Piet Mondriaan. He still worked at it three days before he died.
I visited the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag last week in a depressed mood. When I walked into the room where Victory Boogie Woogie is displayed there was a lonely girl sitting in front of the painting. She was making a drawing, trying to catch the essence of the colours Mondriaan painted. Seeing her made me happy. If there is art there is a future.
