Pieter Cornelis Mondriaan
Why we love it
One of Mondrian’s best known works, a product of his De Stijl period.
Mondrian’s work had an enormous influence on 20th century art, influencing not only the course of abstract painting and numerous major styles and art movements (e.g. Color Field painting, Abstract Expressionism and Minimalism), but also fields outside the domain of painting, such as design, architecture and fashion.
‘After a Cubist phase built entirely on the contrast between light and dark, in 1920 Mondrian found his own style, which he dubbed ‘Neoplasticism’.’
