Mondrian and Colour

Turner Contemporary
24 May 2014 – 21 Sep 2014

Turner Contemporary offers an exclusive UK viewing of the first major exhibition to consider the significance of colour during Piet Mondrian’s early career. Mondrian and Colour explores Mondrian’s (1872-1944) practice, tracing the painter’s use of colour from figuration to early abstraction. Bringing together around 40 paintings by the artist from the Gemeentemuseum Den Haag and other collections in Europe and the USA, the exhibition will demonstrate that Mondrian’s abstract works were not simply mathematical exercises in form but also expressed his search for a new universal harmony.

Mondrian

Turner Contemporary is working in partnership with Tate Liverpool, who will present the concurrent exhibition Mondrian and his Studios: Abstraction into the World from 6 June until 5 October 2014. Mondrian and his Studios will explore the artist’s importance in the field of abstraction and his relationship with architecture and urbanism. The exhibition is the first to consider in depth the significance of colour during Piet Mondrian’s early career, from his earliest studies in the Dutch landscape through to his abstract works of the 1920s and ‘30s made during his time in Paris, including a small selection of works not previously seen in the UK.
