Piet Mondrian, Composition B (No. II), 1935

I chose this painting because of its simplicity, neatness, and calmness. The work belongs to Mondrian's style of Neoplasticism, meaning that it involves only straight black lines, and blocks of white, red, yellow, or blue in between. In this particular work, there is only one block of color in the top left. The white blocks are layered with paint so that they are bright and stand out even amid the precisely sharp, intersecting black lines, while the colored rectangle is painted evenly with parallel strokes.
