Less was certainly more for Piet Mondrian. With his strictly limited pictorial elements—primary colours red, yellow and blue, stark black lines, and white space—he sought a ‘universal harmony’ and created a whole new domain of avant-garde abstraction. This essential guide presents Mondrian's pioneering body of works, including his endeavours in fashion and design, from The White Stripes album covers to haute-couture dresses.
Each of the books published in Taschen’s Basic Art series features a detailed chronological summary of the artist’s life and works, their cultural influence and historical significance, a concise biography and approximately 100 illustrations with explanatory captions.
