What: Join us at the Mondrian exhibition before it ends!

Many know the painter Piet Mondrian (1872-1944) as the creator of strict geometric compositions with black and white lines and color fields in red, blue or yellow. It is hardly known that the Dutchman chose landscapes and other representational motifs in his first decades and often staged them with surprising colors. The North Rhine-Westphalia Art Collection traces Mondrian's path from the early naturalistic paintings to the late abstract works and traces the formal connections that exist between the paintings over five decades.

The exhibition, which is primarily dedicated to the early paintings, shows how Mondrian's development builds on one another and approaches the goal of depicting the absolute. This artistic "evolution" can be studied particularly well in its early stages using landscape motifs. The artist unfolded his formal language on windmills, lighthouses, dunes and farms, in which he concentrated on composing surfaces, vertical and horizontal lines and their rhythms. Both the naturalistic and the late abstract work are the result of an intuitively guided approach and in no way the result of mathematical rationality.
