Piet Mondrian

Piet Mondrian

Piet Mondrian was a Dutch abstract painter and a leading figure of De Stijl, along with Theo van Doesburg. Mondrian’s signature artistic innovation was his geometric, nonobjective painting, characterized by a white ground, a black grid, and red, yellow, and blue rectangular forms. In these works, the artist explored philosophical and spiritual ideas, hoping to represent the harmony of the natural universe in their pure compositions. Born in Amersfoort, the Netherlands, in 1872, Mondrian studied at the Academy for Fine Art in Amsterdam, after which he spent time living in Paris, London, and New York. The artist’s work is included in the collections of the the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, and the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. The artist died in New York in 1944, and has been celebrated in posthumous retrospectives at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C., the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag, The Hague, the Netherlands, and the Centre Pompidou, Paris.
