Mondrian- Tableau no. 2 – MOMA

“He evolved a non-representational form which he termed Neo-Plasticism. This consisted of white ground, upon which was painted a grid of vertical and horizontal black lines and the three primary colors”
Mondrian’s art was intimately related to his spiritual and philosophical studies as he became interested in the theosophical movement launched by Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (Madame Blavatsky). After, he joined the Dutch branch of the Theosophical Society. The work of Blavatsky significantly affected the further development of his aesthetic. Much of Mondrian’s work for the rest of his life was inspired by his search for that spiritual knowledge.
