Piet Mondrian (b.1892-d.1944) Dutch Modern Artist

Piet Mondrian was born in the Netherlands in 1892. Beginning with landscapes, Mondrian moved through various styles, including Cubism, to arrive at his signature style. He reduced his color scheme to primary colors, and divided the blocks of color with simple black lines to create a bold new look in his Neoplastic style. His most significant works include Still Life with Ginger Pot I (1911), Composition (1916) and Broadway Boogie Woogie (1942-43). He died of pneumonia in New York City in 1944, and is celebrated for his widespread impact on the graphic arts, industrial design and architecture.
