Piet Mondrian

(1872-1944)

Mondrian developed a style that banished the conventions of three-dimensional space and the curved line. He wished to build his pictures from the simplest elements – straight lines and primary colours – which he moved around the canvas until he found the perfect composition balance. His aim was to create an objective art of discipline whose laws would somehow reflect the order of the universe – a universal spiritual perfection.
