Even the watermelon he serves me is in keeping with a certain aesthetic—perfectly arranged squares, like a Mondrian painting.

In 1917 Piet Mondrian cofounded the De Stijl movement, which rejected visually perceived reality as subject matter and restricted form to the most basic elements. Such works as Composition with Red, Blue, and Yellow (c. 1930) reflect this criteria. Mondrian’s late masterpieces, including Broadway Boogie Woogie (1942–43), replaced black lines with coloured bands.
Mondrian began to study drawing at age 14, but, at the insistence of his family, he obtained a degree in education. Instead of looking for a teaching position, however, he took painting lessons and then moved to Amsterdam to register at the Rijksacademie, taking drawing lessons.
In commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the Dutch Artist death, the Piet Mondrian’s New York Studio Wall Compositions (The Wall Works) numbers II and III 1943-1944, are shown at the Tate Liverpool exhibition: Mondrian and his Studios, Colour in Space (6 June – 5 October 2014).
I believe this article is really excellent. In fact, I was surprised how good it was when I first came to wikipedia, given the lackluster state of articles concerning some other artists. Perhaps it is time to submit it to peer review. Though there are some obvious holes, such as a lack of info on his personal life, I think this is quite close to becoming featured article worthy. Any thoughts, objections?–Sophitus 03:52, May 29, 2005 (UTC)
Mondrian’s art was always intimately related to his spiritual and philosophical studies. In 1908, he became interested in the theosophical movement launched by Helena Petrovna Blavatsky in the late nineteenth century. Blavatsky believed that it was possible to attain a knowledge of nature more profound than that provided by empirical means, and much of Mondrian’s work for the rest of his life was inspired by his search for that spiritual knowledge. –>
