Early Life

Piet was born in Amersfoort which is in the netherlands. His father was the headmaster of the primary school that he attended. Art and music were encouraged in his household and his dad gave him drawing lessons while his uncle, Fritz Modrian, taught him how to paint.

De Stijl

Piet was involved in the art movement called De Stijl. He was influenced by Picasso and Braque, and he came up with his own style called Neo-Plasticism. Through this form he became an important contributor to De Stijl.

Woods Near Oele

This is my favorite piece by Mondrian because it just is very appealing to the eye and I love forests, but the coolest thing about it is the feeling and style of the painting.
