Composition with Large Blue Plane, Red, Black, Yellow, and Gray - Description

The Dutch painter Piet Mondrian was born into a family of painters. His father was a drawing teacher, and his uncle was a talented landscape painter. Mondrian began his career using these same styles, but quickly moved from representational images to abstract images that emphasized color and line over realism. "Composition with Large Blue Plane, Red, Black, Yellow, and Gray" shows Mondrian's trademark grid format. The upper right of the painting is dominated by three squares of deep blue. One small square of yellow appears at the bottom of the painting, while one rectangle on the left of the painting is split between red and black. The grid lines stop before the edges of the painting, allowing red to peep through. Two squares in the center of the painting appear to pop though, as they are painted in a brighter white than the other squares nearby. "Composition with Large Blue Plane, Red, Black, Yellow, and Gray" is abstraction at its best, allowing the viewer to focus on the painter's technique, on the interplay of colors and grid, and on brushstrokes and white space. "Composition with Large Blue Plane, Red, Black, Yellow, and Gray" is a colorful, vibrant painting for Mondrian. In later works, the painter would emphasize the grid and white space more than color. This painting is unique in its use of contrasting, competing, vibrant colors.
