Lecture within the cycle Między figuracją a abstrakcją (Between Figuration and Abstraction) of the Art Transfer Foundation.
The first lecture is devoted to one of the most important creators of abstract art. Piet Mondrian is primarily known as a representative of neoplasticism, associated with the Dutch group De Stijl. The initial period of his work well illustrates the path which led artists to the art deprived of direct references to reality. In this lecture, we will focus on Mondrian’s early works, which show the influence of Symbolism, Fauvism and Cubism.
