About Farm at Duivendrecht

The artwork “Farm at Duivendrecht” was created by the artist Piet Mondrian in 1908. As an exemplar of the Post-Impressionism movement, this landscape piece is characterized by a departure from the naturalistic depiction and an exploration of color, line, and form. As of the latest available information, the artwork belongs to a private collection.

The artwork portrays a pastoral scene characterized by a farm nestled amidst a grove of trees whose branches are rendered in a style that indicates Mondrian’s transition towards abstraction. The landscape includes a reflection in water, which can be interpreted as a tranquil pond or a river beside the farm. A notable feature of this artwork is the use of a limited color palette, with an emphasis on earthy tones that delineate the architecture of the farm buildings and the intricate network of tree branches. This interplay of the built environment with the natural surroundings suggests a harmony that was a common theme in such depictions of rural life during this era. Mondrian’s approach in “Farm at Duivendrecht” indicates his exploration of the Post-Impressionist interest in emotion and structure beyond the mere imitation of nature.
