Piet Mondrian


Broadway Boogie 1942/43

Pieter Cornelis “Piet” Mondriaan, after 1912 Mondrian,(March 7, 1872–February 1, 1944) was a Dutch painter.

He was an important contributor to the De Stijl art movement and group, which was founded by Theo van Doesburg. He evolved a non-representational form which he termed Neo-Plasticism. This consisted of a grid of vertical and horizontal black lines and the use of the three primary colours.
