Piet Mondrian (1872-1944) was a Dutch painter and an important contributor to the De Stijl art movement, also known as neoplasticism. His artwork is distinguished by a white background with a painted grid of vertical and horizontal black lines. The grid of square and rectangular shapes is filled with the three primary colors, or black and white. Mondrian’s abstract paintings quickly became iconic, and were quite crucial in the development of the modern art movement. Within his lifetime, Mondrian was able to make a living from the sale of his pieces across the world– including the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, England, and the USA. His work remains popular and highly revered to this day.
