Piet Mondrian was a Dutch painter influenced by fellow countryman and artist, Vincent van Gogh. He began as an Expressionist but during WWI began studying the theories of Cubist painting and the absolute properties of artistic order. This eventually led him to the abstract style he is known for today…two dimensional geometric designs created from straight lines, rectangles, and simplistic colors-black, white and the primaries. The designs of line and color create areas that are so well balanced that no space is more important than the other and the viewer’s eye is pulled equally to each area. The tension created by the lines and rectangles reaches the very edge of the canvas which also illustrates the perfect balance of his paintings. His work was the foundation for the De Stijl movement of pure abstraction.

Glad they arrived Sharon _ Thanks or Posting. Detail is not my strength so it was much more fun to follow his style in the tree than in his later work.

Our next artist to cover will be Ted DeGrazia if you want to get a head start. I'll post when I get a chance to write it up, but that probably won't be for at least a couple weeks. Have fun!!!!

These Mondrians and sweet extra cards were made by Dabau. Beautiful job as usual! I loved the way she used a map for a background! Great job on balancing the shapes and colors as well. I think Mondrian would be proud =)
