Despite the abstraction of Piet Mondrian's (1872-1944) mature work, his orderly grids and primary colors were nonetheless shaped by the places in which he lived, including his native Amsterdam and 1940s New York. Illustrated by a wealth of paintings as well as personal photographs, documents, and texts written by Mondrian himself, this book captures every facet of this uncompromising artist's quest to represent the spirit of the modern world. As they grew to resemble his paintings, Mondrian's studios became works of art in their own right, and some of the best depictions of them included here were photographed by Andre Kertesz.
