About Piet Mondrian (1872-1944)
Piet Mondrian was a Dutch abstract painter, best known for his contributions to the De Stijl art movement and his pioneering work in abstract art. Born in 1872, Mondrian is famous for his grid-like compositions consisting of rectangular shapes, primary colors, and black and white lines. He believed that art should express universal harmony and order, and his works are characterized by their simplicity, geometric precision, and use of color.
Over time, Mondrian's style evolved from representational landscapes to completely non-objective abstractions. Today, his works are widely recognized for their innovative techniques and continue to be celebrated for their beauty and significance in the history of modern art. Mondrian remains one of the most influential artists of the 20th century and his works can be found in major museums around the world.
