Mondrian Waste Basket (Large) - Primary Colors
This hand-crafted; lacquered wood waste basket is produced using the centuries old tradition of hand pouring several layers of lacquer. Each layer is individually hand-polished taking several days, to create the unique, deep, rich finish which is impervious to heat and alcohol, The fine patina, created through this hand-crafted process, will give you years of enjoyment. Permission from the Mondrian Trust was acquired to create the Mondrian waste basket. A perfect item for you or the modern art lover in your life.The Mondrian waste basket consists of geometric figures, in particular variations of squares and rectangles. The painting was born from the “˜De Stijl’ movement, one of the major modern movements focused on Neo-Plasticism and founded by Mondrian. The horizontal lines signify a sense of rest and calm, while the vertical lines communicate a sense of height. Working together as an overall piece, the lines create a sense of stability and solidarity. Mondrian was attempting to portray this sense of stability through his paintings and evoke feelings of a utopian society rather than face the instability of the world in its current state.
