Hi Eldon,

I got the first question in my mailbox as well. The
question is frased stupidly enough to raise my eyebrows,
but well my answer was about as follows:
I know only about the last two. Piet Mondrian (one of our
famous dutch-men) read the Secret Doctrine and was a member
of the TS-Adyar his whole life. (though not active). I'll
ask the dutch list for details. 

Kandinsky was certainly spiritually inspired and was part
of the movement that used theosophy/spirituality as an
artistic inspiration. But whether he was a theosophist, or
read theosophical books - I don't remember.
