Composition VII - van Doesburg

We just learned about the famous painting Composition II by Piet Mondrian.

Another famous work of art is Composition VII by Dutch artist Theo van Doesburg in 1917.

Like Mondrian, van Doesburg was part of the De Stijl movement that made abstract art using shapes and colors that were just from their imagination.
