Mondrian and Cubism

Drawn to the cubist work of Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso, Mondrian spent two years in Paris, from 1912–14, that lead him to begin experimenting with an entirely original abstract style. Using a cubist palette of grey and ochre, the artist transformed the landscapes and architectural facades of his earlier figurative works into compositional structures of increasing complexity and abstraction.

Upon his return to the Netherlands in 1914, Mondrian exhibited the 17 works he had painted during those two significant years in France. This volume maps Cubism’s influence on artists working in the Netherlands at that time, and demonstrates Mondrian’s central role in bridging the gap between the French cubists and their Dutch contemporaries. Accompanying over 300 illustrations – including close details of key works – a chronology by Hans Janssen tracks Mondrian’s development within the context of its time.
