Piet Mondrian

Pieter Cornelis (Piet) Mondriaan, after 1912 Mondrian, (b. Amersfoort, Netherlands, 7 March 1872 — d. New York City, 1 February 1944) was a Dutch painter.

He was an important contributor to the De Stijl art movement and group, which was founded by Theo van Doesburg. He evolved a non-representational form which he termed Neo-Plasticism. This consisted of a grid of vertical and horizontal black lines and the use of the three primary colours.
