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.
