About White Rose in a Glass

The artwork “White Rose in a Glass” by Piet Mondrian, crafted in 1921, is a fine exemplar of the Fauvism movement. Executed in watercolor, it captures the delicate essence of a solitary flower. The dimensions of this ethereal piece are 27.5 x 21.5 cm, categorically placing it within the flower painting genre. Those wishing to behold this piece in person may visit the Gemeentemuseum den Haag, located in the Hague, Netherlands.

In this artwork, Mondrian presents a subtle yet vibrant composition, featuring a singular white rose poised in a transparent glass. The background is a warm, monochromatic wash of orange, providing a striking contrast to the cool tones of the meticulously rendered flower. The rose, with tinges of blue, comes across as both ethereal and grounded, inviting contemplation on its form and the tranquility it exudes within its glass vessel. Characteristic of Mondrian’s work from this time, the painting displays a harmony of color and form, invoking a serene and poetic ambiance that engages the viewer in a silent dialogue with nature’s simplistic beauty.
