Trees – Piet Mondrian

The Dutch painter Piet Mondrian was an important contributor to the De Stilj movement and group in the early 1900’s. He undoubtedly most known to the general public for his “Neo-Plastic” paintings; a white background upon which he painted a grid of horizontal and vertical black lines, and fields of the primary colours. Less known is his period in Paris between 1911 and 1914, where he was heavily influenced by Picasso and Braque, embracing the Cubist style. Important for this period was a series of studies of tree, reduced to lines and space.
