  2. 2. Pieter Cornelis Mondrian was born on March 7th 1872 He was born in Holland and lived there for the first eight years of his life. His father Pieter Cornelis was a teacher. His uncle Frits Mondrian was a painter.
  3. 3. The paintings that Piet Mondrian is most famous for are RECTANGLES of WHITE and PRIMARY colors (RED , BLUE AND YELLOW), dissected by BLACK LINES. He did not always paint this way. Mondrian’s first paintings are scenes found in real life. The painting shown below is “Avond”.
  4. 4. Avond Evening; Red Tree (1908)
  5. 5. Mondrian soon became interested in CUBISM Cubism is an artistic style in which the subject is broken into meaningful pieces. The painting shown below, “Still Life with Ginger Pot”, was painted by Mondrian in the cubist style. Because of the influence of cubism, Mondrian’s paintings became more and more abstract.

  7. 7. Mondrian became friends with some other artists and together they began the new movement, De Stijl. The movement was called De Stijl because that was the name of the journal that Mondrian and his friends started. They called the movement NEOPLASTICISM and today both names are correct.

  10. 10. In September 1938, Mondrian left Paris and moved to London. He left London for Manhattan.

And thus Mondrian achieved his goal: to become one of the greatest painters in history.
