Mondrian and his Studios – Tate Liverpool

Dutch painter Piet Mondrian (18721944) is renowned as one of the most important contributors to the development of abstraction at the beginning of the 20th century, and his stunning and influential works are recognised by everyone from art lovers to students of architecture and graphic design.

Mondrian and his Studios marks the 70th anniversary of the artist’s death and considers not only Mondrian’s significance, but also the circumstances (in both life and painting) that led him to make the switch from successful figurative artist in his homeland to international radical innovator. Mondrian dropped the second “a” from the Dutch spelling of his name (Mondriaan) as a signal of intent and immersed himself in the Parisian avant-garde community, but encountering  Picasso’s experiments with cubism would prove even more momentous.

Tate Liverpool has been working closely with Plus Tate partner Turner Contemporary throughout Mondrian and his Studios. Turner Contemporary, based in Margate, presents the exhibition Mondrian and Colour in collaboration with the Bucerius Kunst Forum, Hamburg, until 21 September 2014. Mondrian and Colour explores the early period of the artist’s career, tracing the painter’s use of colour from figuration to early abstraction. Together, the exhibitions will focus the UK’s attention on this pioneer of abstract art, timed to coincide with the 70th anniversary of his death.
