This 1922 composition takes us right to the heart of Piet Mondrian’s radical aesthetic. In the 1920s, the Dutch painter developed an art based on elementary principles: straight lines, areas separated from each other, and the three primary colours (red, yellow, blue) and the two non-colours (black and white). By emancipating himself from the need to represent reality, Mondrian emerged as one of the pioneers of abstract art in the early 20th century.
