Piet Mondrian 1872-1944 Dutch Abstraction
Piet Mondrian, an artist, theorist and writer, is best known for his growth to purity of abstraction (Neo-Plasticism), which evolved from a spiritual order he saw underlying the visual world. He was fascinated with rhythm and duration, and music was a source of inspiration for him, especially jazz. His “Broadway Boogie-Woogie” of 1942-43 is a fine example of this fascination and inspiration. In his later art works he used variations of line and shapes in three primary colors to express his ideas. This class will present his art and ideas.
