Mondrian Paintings come from the career of famous Dutch painter, Piet Mondrian, who remains amongst the most significant Abstract artists from the early 20th century, at a time when these modern art movements were working art to receive academic acceptance. It took innovative artists like Piet Mondrian to persuade the art world that these new art movements were of integrity and quality, and were also here to stay for years to come. Mondrianpaintings.com will bring you the finest paintings to have come from Piet Mondrian's career as well as including information on the life of the artist too.
The Netherlands has an impressive history within art thanks in the main to the Dutch Golden Age which offered some of the finest landscape painting in the world, but Piet Mondrian came much later than this high point, and his style was clearly very different to other painters who had put Dutch art on the map. Mondrian was typical of a modern artist, strong willed and confident that his own art movement would eventually make it into the mainstream as an accepted and respected art form.
Piet Mondrian Paintings
Piet Mondrian paintings are fimrly in the realms of abstraction but it is important to remember that actually Mondrian covered various different styles in his early days as a young artist, before settling on a modern art style that he most preferred and would stick with for the rest of his career. This path was similar to that of Spanish painter Joan Miro and Russian Wassily Kandinsky who also settled on abstract art after years of development in which they successfully incorporated several styles into their portfolio.
The National Gallery painting above was a popular composition using Piet Mondrian's usual choices of primary and secondary colours in simple but unusual matrixes which have become instantly recognisable as Mondrian. In many examples from his career, the artist would use black lines to separate sections of colour within his composition, with reds, blues, yellows, whites and greys as his prefered colours for these objects, which would normally be squares.
Broadway Boogie Woogie Painting by Piet Mondrian
Broadway Boogie Woogie is the best known painting from Piet Mondrian's career and also features greater detail than many of his other works. Victory Boogie Woogie followed a similar approach to this, but is considerably lesser known. It is generally accepted that Broadway Boogie Woogie is Mondrian's attempt at depicting New York taxis from a birds-eye view, similar in a way to a Google Map with Taxis taking up the symbol of a yellow square. Broadway Boogie Woogie clearly underlines the traffic and high acitivty within New York City though most who view this painting probably are not aware of the subject of the work, because of it's exceptionally abstract look.
All successful artists become compared to other artists during and after this career, but Mondrian was exceptionally innovative and imaginative at a time when his style was so unusual. Many uninitiated would look at Mondrian's paintings in the modern day and not understand that his career holds great importance to the art world, because of their lack of understanding of art history. The only significant artist to have created art very similar to Mondrian's approach was Russian Kazimir Malevich who is undeniably similar to Mondrian.

Red Yellow and Blue Painting by Piet Mondrian
Red Yellow and Blue were the most common colours to have been used by Mondrian within his best known style that took up the period later on in his career. Mondrian bears similar traits to Kandinsky and Miro in that although he showed great proficiency and enthusiasm for all sorts of different art movements and media in his early stages as an artist, he has since become labelled as one type of artist and sadly in death can do nothing do reverse this trend or help to explain to the art public that his career did cover a wider set of styles than they might realise.
