The unmistakable work of Piet Mondrian (1872-1944) is characterized by its rhythm, clarity and bold colours. Often considered wholly non-representational, his paintings were in fact inspired directly by his experience of life.
By examining Mondrian's fascinating process of working - through his drawings, studies and finished paintings - John Milner explores the energetic tension between the brilliantly disciplined compositions and their underlying subject matter.
