About Piet Mondrian Pin - Today Is Art Day - Composition II in Red, Blue, and Yellow

This Piet Mondrian Pin is inspired by his famous painting: Composition II in Red, Blue, and Yellow. Mondrian’s iconic work “Composition with Red, Blue and Yellow” made in 1930 and it is located at the Kunsthaus Zürich in Switzerland. This painting reflects Mondrian’s interest in the abstract quality of line. By 1914 he had all but eliminated the curved line from his work. By 1916 he had suppressed any sense of a subject. Still later he developed a new form of rigorous abstraction called Neo-Plasticism in which he limited himself to straight, horizontal and vertical lines and basic primary colors. Typically his compositions were not symmetrical but could scarcely be purer in their elements. He felt this art reflected a greater, universal truth beyond everyday appearance.

Mondrian
Mondrian was a Dutch painter, widely regarded as the founder of Modern art. The Bauhaus immediately referenced his work when discussing his lines, simplified colors and aesthetical appeal. His work inspired the Minimalist movement as well as far-reached impacts across all kinds of modern and post-modern culture. Mondrian greatly contributed to the De Stijl art movement. He created a non-representational form recognized by its white ground, topped with a grid of vertical and horizontal black lines and the three primary colors. One of his most famous compositions in this style is Composition II in Red, Blue, and Yellow. Mondrian believed that the composition of the most fundamental aspects of line and color was the total realization of true beauty. Painter’s work continues to have an immense impact on the development of modern art. Eventually, he influenced Art movements including the Bauhaus and Minimalism. He influenced the fashion designs of Yves Saint Laurent. He also inspired the design for the cover of The White Stripes 2000 album, De Stijl.
