Mondrian’s Shapes and Colors

Piet Mondrian was born in Netherlands in 1872. Mondrian’s father was an architect and he gave his son lots of drawing tools. Mondrian loved to create designs with rectangles.
He painted many of them using only primary colors outlined in black. He rarely used a ruler. His eyes guided his paintbrush to complete his geometric abstractions.
