Exhibition at the K20 traces artistic evolution of Piet Mondrian – Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen
Many know the painter Piet Mondrian (1872-1944) as the creator of strict geometric compositions with black and white lines and colour fields in red, blue or yellow. That the Dutchman chose landscapes and other representational motifs in his first decades and often staged them with surprising colourfulness is hardly known. The Kunstsammlung Nordrhein-Westfalen shows Mondrian’s path from the early naturalistic paintings to the late abstract works and traces the formal connections that exist between the paintings from five decades.
