Composition A - Description

The Dutch painter Piet Mondrian painted "Composition A" in Paris in 1920. Mondrian had been moving from Cubist techniques in painting to a style all his own. He called this style "neoplasticism," a style that emphasizes color and abstraction over realistic forms. The movement would eventually be known as De Stijl, and would go on to influence architecture, music and drawing. Mondrian believed paintings such as "Composition A" represented nature in its purest forms, that stark colors and sharply executed geometric patterns and lines could express the beauty of the natural world more accurately than even the most well-executed landscape. In "Composition A," red, yellow, blue and black squares of color are surrounded by black grid lines. The lines fade at the edges of the painting, giving the viewer the impression that they continue indefinitely. Close inspection reveals that Mondrian used differing brushstrokes for the lines and the squares of color, hoping to express depth of field and contrast. In later paintings, Mondrian would reduce the amount of color used in his paintings, favoring white space over color. In "Composition A," however, color is used lavishly, showing bright contrast between yellow and black, red and blue, framed by dark lines and white space.
