Summary
Mondrian had a pioneering role in the definition and conceptualisation of abstraction, but was also interested in the complex relationship between his artworks, the space around them and the belief that they were conceived to inspire. His studios in Amsterdam, Paris and New York reflect different stages of the painter's way of thinking and of his intentions. Each was designed to allow the artist to perform a clearly defined intellectual and social role. As well as focusing on his studios, this book also explores Mondrian's broader relationship with architecture and urbanism. Many of Mondrian's best-known Neo-Plastic works will be included in full colour, along with a plethora of images of the artist in his studio. Exhibition: Tate Liverpool, UK (10.6.-21.9.2014).
