Piet Mondrian

Dátum narodenia: 7. marec 1872
Dátum úmrtia: 1. február 1944

Pieter Cornelis "Piet" Mondriaan, po roku 1912 Piet Mondrian bol holandský maliar, člen Abstraction-Création.

Bol významným predstaviteľom avantgardnej umeleckej skupiny De Stijl, ktorú založil Theo van Doesburg. Vyvinul nereprezentatívnu formu, ktorú nazval neoplasticizmus. Túto formu tvorila mriežka z vertikálnych a horizontálnych čiernych čiar s použitím troch základných farieb .

Jeho poslednú, nedokončenú, maľbu Victory Boogie-Woogie kúpilo v roku 1997 holandské múzeum Gemeentemuseum Den Haag za zhruba 37 miliónov eur.

Mondrian's answer to Theo van Doesburg's retrospective article in 'De Stijl' magazine in 1929, where he wrote: 'By the lively and most articulate evolution the principles, developed mainly by P.
