Piet Mondrian

Early Mondrian: Painting 1900–1905
10 November 2015
Piet Mondrian, 'Polder Landscape with Silhouetted Young Tree', 1900–01 (detail). Private collection, London.

Karsten Schubert curates an exhibition of early paintings by Dutch painter Piet Mondrian at David Zwirner, London.

 

The exhibition provides a concise view of the artist’s figurative landscape paintings from 1900-1905, highlighting the period prior to his involvement with De Stijl and Neo-Plasticism, for which he is most known.

 

The selection of works, which depict the Dutch countryside outside of Amsterdam, reflect Mondrian’s lifelong interest in nature and represent some of the earliest examples in his evolution toward increasingly geometric abstractions.
