Tate Liverpool. Piet Mondrian and his Studios opens this week. 6 June – 5 October 2014. Brand new exhibition which provides fresh insight into the work of Piet Mondrian, an icon and important contributor to the development of abstract art at the beginning of the 20th century.
Dutch painter Piet Mondrian (1872–1944) was one of the most important contributors to the development of abstract art at the beginning of the 20th century. This brand new exhibition, which commemorates the 70th anniversary of the artist’s death, provides fresh insights into Mondrian’s practice and explores his relationship with architecture and urbanism.
This special exhibition will consider the relationship between Mondrian’s artworks and the space around them. Focusing on this connection between painting and architecture after Mondrian’s move to Paris in 1911, a major exhibition highlight will be a life size reconstruction of his Paris Studio which will allow visitors to immerse themselves in Mondrian’s creative world.
