Collectie: Piet Mondrian

Piet Mondrian was a pioneering Dutch abstract artist known for his distinctive geometric paintings characterized by perpendicular lines and primary colors. Born in 1872, Mondrian initially painted in a traditional style before transitioning to abstraction. He was a key figure in the De Stijl movement, which aimed to express a universal aesthetic language through art.

His art was deeply influenced by spiritual and philosophical ideas, seeking to represent the balance between opposing forces and the harmony of the universe through simplicity and purity.

His style evolved over time, moving towards a more grid-based, non-representational form known as Neoplasticism. Mondrian believed that art had the power to reveal the underlying structure of reality. His work had a profound impact on modern art and design, influencing fields ranging from painting and architecture to fashion and beyond.
