The museum displays nine naturalistic works from Mondrian's early period. These paintings and drawings from the period 1899-1908, originally from the Esser collection and on loan from the Mondriaanhuis, were acquired in 2022. Mondrian's earlier work is still figurative and artisanal, although signs of innovation can already be seen.

1. Isolated tree on the Gein (oil sketch I), Oil on canvas, 1906-1907, 53 x 36 cm
2. Farmstead, Oil on canvas 1905, 27 x 39 cm
