About Composition II in Red, Blue, & Yellow

“Composition II in Red, Blue, & Yellow” is a famous abstract painting created by the Dutch artist Piet Mondrian. It is considered one of the iconic works of the Neo-Plasticism.

The painting is characterized by its use of primary colors (red, blue, and yellow) and non-colors (black, white, and gray), as well as geometric shapes, particularly rectangles. Mondrian’s goal in creating this artwork was to distill art to its purest form, using only essential elements like color and geometric form to create a sense of harmony and balance.

Mondrian’s work had a significant influence on the development of abstract art, and his exploration of geometric abstraction and primary colors continue to be influential in the world of art and design. His style, characterized by grids, rectangles, and primary colors, has been widely adopted and adapted in various forms of modern and contemporary art.
