Extract

Whether the paintings of Piet Mondrian (1872-1944) took the form of landscape idylls or abstract configurations, there is in them a feeling of stability and optimism for the future. In his earlier work, a sense of balance was perhaps implied in the pictorial rendering of serene terrain, but later in his career he sought to convey a harmonic state of existence using geometric elements and primary colors (Busignani A. Beamish C, trans. Mondrian. New York, NY/London, UK: Thames and Hudson; 1989:1-79). His hope was that this concept would be embraced by the world, bringing about its transformation to an attitude of accord and cooperation.
