About Gable Farm with trees

“Gable Farm with trees” is an artwork by Piet Mondrian, a prominent artist known for his contributions to the abstract De Stijl art movement, although this piece pertains to his earlier, Post-Impressionist period. The medium used for this artwork is oil on canvas, and it measures 31 by 27 cm. This landscape genre piece resides in the Musée Sainte-Croix in Poitiers, France.

The artwork presents a serene view of a rural farm, characterized by the use of earthy, muted tones. The composition focuses on a cluster of farm buildings; their steep gabled roofs create a strong geometric presence within the scene. Trees are represented with vertical lines that frame the farm structures, and the artist’s brushwork imbues the scene with texture, suggesting the tranquility and simplicity of rural life. The play of light and shadow adds depth to the artwork, with the sky subtly hinted at in the upper corners, giving way to the prominence of the farm in the center.

Piet Mondrian’s renderings from this period often explored the balance and harmony that can be found in nature, predating his later, more abstract works that would concentrate on primary colors and grid structures. In “Gable Farm with trees,” the viewer witnesses Mondrian’s subtle and quiet investigation of form, light, and natural color, contributing to the rich tapestry of Post-Impressionist art.
