    Is his work titled Blue Façade, 1914 considered cubism? I love this piece! Either way, I'm lurking. But if this piece is cubism...I'm seriously considering joining...

    This was a fascinating article on Mondrian:

    https://blog.artsper.com/en/a-closer...piet-mondrian/


    1. His name is an anagram for I Paint Modern
    2. Mondrian considered his art as a spiritual pursuit
    3. He founded "Neoplasticism, a movement that also referred to architects who utilized primary colors, basic forms, shape and composition to test the boundaries of abstract art. "
    4. He never used a ruler to draw lines - 'despite the simplistic nature of his works, they would take several months to complete."
    5. Mondrian’s paintings were in Hitler’s “Degenerate Art Exhibition”
    6. His works inspired fashion and music - Yves St Laurent created a series of fashion dresses in for his Mondrian Collection
    7. He survived the Spanish Flu of 1918
    8. He loved to Boogie Woogie and was a fan of the Charleston dance
    9. He contributed to Nobel Prize winning science
    10. His home is where the art is

    I love Mondrian, but count me as a lurker until, or if, I can get something made.
