About Tableau No. IV - Lozenge Composition

“Tableau No. IV – Lozenge Composition” is an artwork by Piet Mondrian, a prominent figure in the art movement known as Neoplasticism. The piece exemplifies the abstract genre and is housed in the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, US.

The artwork is a distinctive example of Mondrian’s mature style, characterized by a balanced arrangement of geometric forms and a restrained palette. Framed as a diamond or lozenge, the composition is constructed with a series of black lines that form a grid with rectangular shapes. The grid contains blocks of color, including white, as well as Mondrian’s signature primary colors: red, blue, and yellow. Each color is carefully placed, resulting in a harmonious visual balance between the colored shapes and the open white spaces. The use of straight horizontal and vertical lines creates a sense of order and reflects Mondrian’s philosophical pursuit of a visual language that expresses universal harmony and equilibrium.
