art vases ~ Mondrian:- Composition With
Large Red Plane
A beautiful stand alone piece this small vase will attract many admiring looks or can be displayed with others in this collection.
Piet Mondrian, one of the founders of the Dutch modern
movement De Stijl, is recognized for the purity of his
abstractions & methodical practice by which he arrived at them.
He radically simplified the elements of his paintings to reflect
what he saw as the spiritual order underlying the visible world, creating a clear, universal aesthetic language within his canvases.
In his best known paintings from the 1920s, Mondrian
reduced his shapes to lines and rectangles and his palette
to fundamental basics pushing past references to
the outside world toward pure abstraction.
His use of asymmetrical balance and a simplified pictorial vocabulary were crucial in the development of modern art,
and his iconic abstract works remain influential in
design and familiar in popular culture to this day.
