About Triangulated Farmhouse Facade with Polder in Blue

“Triangulated Farmhouse Facade with Polder in Blue” is an artwork by Piet Mondrian created around 1900. It is a landscape piece employing gouache, watercolor, and paper as its medium. The artwork is a part of the Post-Impressionism movement and measures 45.5 x 58.5 cm. The piece is currently housed at the Gemeentemuseum den Haag in The Hague, Netherlands.

The artwork illustrates a tranquil rural scene, featuring a farmhouse forefronted by foliage and a garden path leading to the residence. The house, characterized by a triangular gable end, is a central focus, nestled amongst trees that frame the scene softly. The background reveals a glimpse of a polder—a low-lying stretch of land reclaimed from a body of water in Dutch landscapes—which is indicated by subtle hues of blue, serving to provide a sense of depth and distance. The colors are subdued with a moody ambiance, capturing the essence of the landscape with a blend of precision and atmospheric quality typical of Mondrian’s early works before he ventured into his well-known abstract geometric style.
