GD1 Grid composition/Line from a song

Posted on October 16th, 2018

The artist Piet Mondrian is our inspiration for this composition.
Piet Mondrian, (pronounced: Pete Moan-dree-on) (b. Amersfoort, Netherlands, 1872 —1944), Dutch painter
Mondrian was an important contributor to the De Stijl art movement and group, which was founded by Theo van Doesburg.

Despite being well-known, often-parodied and even trivialized, Mondrian's paintings exhibit a complexity that belies their apparent simplicity.

He is best known for his non-representational paintings that he called compositions, consisting of rectangular forms of red, yellow, blue or black, separated by thick, black rectilinear lines.

They are the result of a stylistic evolution that occurred over the course of nearly 30 years and continued beyond that point to the end of his life.
