Piet Mondrian was a Dutch painter, known for his contributions to Abstraction and the De Stijl movement. Mondrian initially painted mostly landscapes and realistic nature scenes, but was influenced by contemporary artists Bart van der Leck and Theo van Doesburg, who were also Abstract painters. Mondrian's style was also heavily influenced by his interest in spiritual studies, and Theosophy in particular, which emphasized complete harmony and the cyclical nature of life. As his career progressed, his paintings became more and more minimalistic, as he emphasized the flatness of his work surface, utilized more whitespace and less color, and limited his work to simple geometries and colors. He later coined his own style, called Neoplasticism, which uses lines and blocks of color to create a feeling of balance and harmony.
