Presenting a major reappraisal of Mondrian's contribution to the development of abstract painting, this substantial catalogue features fine reproductions of 186 paintings and drawings produced by the celebrated Dutch artist over the course of his career, the selection encompassing examples of his early naturalistic landscapes and his Cubist-influenced compositions of the early 1910s as well as many of his "neo-plastic" works, the grid-format color abstractions for which he achieved international renown. Includes a lengthy essay tracing the evolution of Mondrian's oeuvre, an extensive chronology of his career, a detailed reassessment of the significance of the "checkerboard" paintings of 1919 to the formulation of his neo-plasticist aesthetic, and commentaries on individual works that incorporate excerpts from his correspondence and other writings.
