Piet Mondrian - "Curves are so Emotional"
Piet Mondrian was born in the city of Amersfoort, Netherlands as Pieter Cornelis Mondriaan. He was originally a teacher who also dabbled in painting. Most of his paintings are oil on canvas.
Sometime during 1908, Mondriaan was attracted to spiritual studies, especially the ‘Theosophical Movement’. He blended his newfound spiritualism with his paintings in an abstract Luminist style. Luminist works are paintings of landscapes with lighting effects and hidden brushstrokes.
