About Piet Mondrian
Piet Mondrian (1872-1944) was a Dutch painter known for being one of the pioneers of 20th-century abstract art. He is best-known for his colorful geometric patterns, but Mondrian started out as a figurative painter. Mondrian’s work affected art and cultural styles, and his paintings hang around the world. Piet Mondrian died in New York, where his funeral was attended by nearly 200 people, including the artists Marc Chagall, Marcel Duchamp and Alexander Calder.
