“Composition” is an early example of the geometric mode of painting that Piet Cornelies Mondrian called Neo-plasticism (aka“the new plastic art”). The abstract two-dimensional nature of these compositions formed a new universal aesthetic language that was popularized through the magazine De Stijl.
1921 Composition, Mondrian uses thick black lines to divide the canvas into eleven different rectangles, some of which are painted in primary shades of red and blue. He created lighter hues by mixing primary colors with white. For Mondrian, Neo-plasticism was a universal style because its emphasis on planar relationships could be extended not only to painting, but also to design and architecture.
