  1. this is very cool and i’ll share with my class. my kinders are studying mondrian.

    • Really, good timing then, they should get a kick from the Barbie, and it shows them how one artist influenced another. The dress on the manikin is an actual YSL dress and the one on the doll was made by a Seattle artist for the show.

  2. Wow, I remember the design, I had a dress very similar to this back in the 60’s.
