About Composition 2

“Composition 2” is an abstract painting by Dutch artist Piet Mondrian created in 1929. The medium used for this artwork is oil on canvas. It is a representation of the Neoplasticism art movement, which emphasizes a reduction to the essentials of form and color. Currently, the painting is housed at the National Museum of Serbia, located in Belgrade, Serbia.

The visual composition of the artwork showcases Mondrian’s iconic style, which is characterized by a grid of vertical and horizontal black lines that segment the canvas into distinct areas. These areas are filled with flat, unmodulated primary colors—red, blue, and yellow—alongside white and neutral spaces. The large red square dominates the composition, capturing the eye. This piece exemplifies Mondrian’s commitment to harmony and balance through the use of geometric elements, embodying his search for universal aesthetic values.
