Quick Reference

A term coined by the Dutch artist Piet Mondrian (1872–1944) to describe the severely geometrical, abstract art he developed which he claimed was ‘denaturalized’, freed from the obligation of naturalistic representation. He restricted the elements of pictorial design to the straight line and the rectangle and to the primary colours together with white, black, and grey.
