Composition II - Mondrian

We just learned about the work of art Revolving Torsion by Naum Gabo.

Another famous work of art is Composition II by Piet Mondrian.

We learned a while back about another of Mondrian's works called Broadway Boogie Woogie

Mondrian was famous for an abstract style of painting called De Stijl which is Dutch and means the style.

He only used the same shades of white, yellow, red, blue and black to make his paintings, and he used straight lines, squares and rectangles.
