Sentence of the Week
‘View from the Dunes with Beach and Piers, Domburg’, Piet Mondrian, 1909, Museum of Modern Art
Tomorrow’s NYT travel section has a piece by Freda Moon on Domburg, the Dutch North Sea resort where Piet Mondrian once spent his summers. Or, as Moon explains,
From 1908 to 1916, Mondrian spent summers (and some winters) in Domburg, before moving to New York in 1940.
Am I missing something? I suppose something went wrong in the editing process, but this is a strange sentence, isn’t it?
It does appear that Mondrian moved to New York in 1940, and that his last year in Domburg was 1916, so the details are correct. Just juxtaposed oddly.
