Piet Mondrian (US version)

$ 2.99

Regarded today as one of the greatest artists of the 20th century, the Dutch painter and theoretician Piet Mondrian was an important leader in the rise of modern abstract art. From Hague School landscapes to Post-Impressionist canvases, from Cubist experiments to abstract masterpieces, Mondrian’s art developed and reinvented itself to the point of simple geometric elements. His mature paintings, employing combinations of straight lines, right angles and primary colours, possess an extreme formal purity, exemplifying Mondrian’s spiritual belief in a harmonious cosmos. Delphi’s Masters of Art Series presents the world’s first digital e-Art books, allowing readers to explore the works of great artists in comprehensive detail. This volume presents Mondrian’s collected works in beautiful detail, with concise introductions, hundreds of high quality images and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
