About Composition No.10

“Composition No.10” is an abstract artwork by Piet Mondrian created between 1939 and 1942. The piece is executed in oil on canvas, measuring 79.5 x 73 cm. Embodying the principles of Neoplasticism, an art movement that advocates for the reduction of form and color to their simplest expression, Mondrian’s work is part of a private collection. The painting continues the artist’s exploration of a new kind of aesthetic that is both universal and harmonic, aiming to reflect a greater, spiritual order.

The artwork displays a meticulous arrangement of black lines that form a grid on a predominantly white background. The composition is carefully balanced with blocks of primary colors: red, yellow, and blue, interspersed within the grid. Mondrian’s signature style, characterized by the use of straight vertical and horizontal lines and a restrained color palette, is evident in this work. The lines do not form any representational image but rather use the language of pure abstraction to achieve a sense of dynamic equilibrium. Each color and line is positioned with precision to maintain a sense of harmony and tension within the canvas. This manifestation of Mondrian’s theories on art and spirituality presents a clear display of the fundamental elements of color, space, and form.
