About Composition C (No.III) with Red, Yellow and Blue

“Composition C (No.III) with Red, Yellow and Blue” is an abstract painting by Piet Mondrian created in 1935. The artwork, which measures 56 x 52.2 cm, was painted using oil on canvas. It belongs to the Neoplasticism movement and, as of the last known information, is held in a private collection.

The painting features a grid composed of black lines that delineate a series of non-uniform rectangles and squares. The majority of the geometric shapes are filled with white, but the composition is punctuated by three primary color blocks: one red, one yellow, and one blue. These blocks of color are asymmetrically distributed across the composition, creating a sense of balance through contrast and spatial arrangements. Mondrian’s use of straight lines and primary colors is a nod to his artistic philosophy, where he pursued a form of pure abstraction that emphasized universal aesthetics and harmony.
