About Composition blanc, rouge et jaune

Dutch artist Piet Mondrian’s Composition Blanc, Rouge Et Jaune painted in 1936, is a prime example of his pioneering work in Neo-Plasticism. This style involved distilling representations to basic vertical and horizontal elements while seeking balance and harmony through geometric abstraction.

What stands out about this painting is Mondrian’s use of only red, yellow, and blue alongside black and white. He seeks balance through the use of white as a point of rest surrounded by colored areas. Despite the limited color palette, the composition is not static due to the surrounding colored areas and their placement.

Composition Blanc, Rouge Et Jaune measures 80 x 62.2 cm and was created using oil on canvas with Mondrian’s signature P M 36 appearing in the bottom right corner. The artwork can now be found at Los Angeles County Museum of Art where it continues to fascinate viewers with its simplicity and beauty.

Overall, this painting serves as an excellent example of Mondrian’s groundbreaking work in modern art characterized by straightforward geometry evoking harmony from visual chaos. It remains one of his most iconic pieces coveted by art enthusiasts worldwide who admire its flawless combination of color and form within a minimalistic framework.
