A key figure in the international avant-garde, Piet Mondrian (1872−1944) was at once an extraordinary painter and art theoretician whose influence is as profound today as it ever was. For Mondrian, the emotion of beauty is always hindered by particular appearance of an object; the object must therefore be abstracted from any figurative representation. After coining the term Neo-plasticism, he pursued painting composed only of the most fundamental aspects of primary color (red, yellow, blue) against a grid of black vertical and horizontal lines and a white base background.
