Composition in Colour B, 1917 poster by Piet Mondrian


Artist: Piet Mondrian

Composition in Colour B was painted by Piet Mondrian in 1917 using oil on canvas. The muted primary colours of rose red, deep blue and ochre and the squares being linked with fragments of black lines demonstrates Mondrian’s early experiments with Neoplasticism. The aesthetic objective for this style was to obtain an arrangement based on contrasts which meant his paintings often included both vertical and horizontal lines and tones alongside primary colours.
