We recently took the short trip to Tate Liverpool to see the Mondrian; the Dutch Master’s paintings.
“Dutch painter Piet Mondrian (1872–1944) is renowned as one of the most important contributors to the development of abstraction at the beginning of the 20th century, and his stunning and influential works are recognised by everyone from art lovers to students of architecture and graphic design. But what of the man himself?”
Being so familiar with the ‘Mondrian style’ it was interesting to learn that he only began to produce his primary colour grids in 1919, aged 47. The recreation of Mondrian’s home/studio at 26 Reu De Depart was really interesting. The blocks of colour that permeate through his work also covered his walls and his studio became a meeting place for the Paris Avant-Garde scene.
The exhibition runs from 6 June – 5 October 2014 so if you get a chance be sure to visit.
