Piet Mondrian composition with grid Lozenge 1919

PIET MONDRIAN

COMPOSITION WITH GRID

(LOZENGE)

1919

Oil on canvas

detail

Photo Ethnoflorence

1.JPG

Inspired by Cubism, Mondrian moved away from the naturalism of his earlier landscape paintings and began to explore the possibilities of working with a grid pattern to define an entire painting.

In this composition, narrow, diagonal lines map a network of diamonds while horizontal and vertical lines divide them into 256 triangles.

A flickering optical illusion is created by lines of varying thickness that suggest rectangular and square compartments of different sizes.
