About the book

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.




In The Press
'A splendid book, and one we needed. The presentation is as good as can be with plates close to where the works are discussed.' (Royal Academy Magazine)
