Relational Painting Number 64

METROPOLITAN MUSEUM OF ART

NEW YORK

Glarner adopted Mondrian’s simplified vocabulary of forms and colors but modified the severity of Mondrian’s geometry by introducing diagonal lines that changed rectangles into trapezoids and created irregular rhythmical patterns.

This painting typifies the geometric abstractions Glarner produced in New York after he immigrated to the United States in 1936.
