About Village Church

The artwork “Village Church” by Piet Mondrian, created in 1898, is a cityscape rendered in various media including charcoal, gouache, pastel, pencil, and watercolor on paper, measuring 75 x 50 cm. It’s a representation of the Post-Impressionist movement and currently resides in a private collection.

The image displays a pastoral village scene dominated by a church surrounded by buildings, most likely homes, which are depicted in muted earthen tones. The church, which is the focal point of the composition, is seen through the intricate network of bare tree branches that frame the view. The detailed tree limbs occupy the foreground, creating a lace-like veil through which the viewer glimpses the village buildings. The use of light and shadow, as well as the blending of colors, contributes to the sense of tranquility and harmony within the natural landscape and human settlement. The image captures the essence of the village, highlighting the presence of the church, which appears to be a central and enduring feature of rural life at the turn of the century.
