Focusing on a prolific stage in Piet Mondrian’s early career, this volume provides a concise view of the artist’s figurative landscape painting. Primarily made during his time in Amsterdam at the turn of the century, Mondrian’s dense, small-scale paintings depict the surrounding Dutch landscape, notably irrigation ditches, canals and farm buildings. Due to his appeal with the different forms, and his ability to create work that touched so many, Piet Mondrian is one of the well known artists who began his work early in the 20th century. Although he was born outside of the US, he did eventually make his way to the Western World, and was able to become quite famous in his own right, for the quality and styles that he took . Tableau I (Piet Mondriaan, ) Piet Mondrian (7 March – 1 February ) was a Dutch modern artist of the De stijl group. His early paintings show abstract landscapes in post-impressionist and cubist style. He painted in an increasingly abstract style, until he finally achieved the style which made him : 7 March , Amersfoort, Netherlands. Mondrian was introduced to art from an early age. His father was a qualified drawing teacher, and, with his uncle, Fritz Mondriaan (a pupil of Willem Maris of the Hague School of artists), the younger Piet often painted and drew along the river ion: Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten.

Piet Mondrian, born Pieter Cornelis Mondriaan, Jr. grew up as the second of five children in a devoutly Calvinist home in central Holland. Art and music were encouraged in his household. His father, the headmaster of the local primary school, was an enthusiastic amateur artist who gave drawing lessons to his son, while Mondrian's uncle, Fritz.   Piet Mondrian's earliest paintings are landscapes heavily influenced by the Dutch Impressionist style. Early in the 20th century, he began to move away from realism in his paintings with the bright colors of Post-Impressionism. His painting Evening (Avond) includes the primary colors of red, yellow, and blue as most of his palette. This meant that Piet was introduced to and surrounded by artistic ideas from very early on in his life, sewing the seeds for his later career. Mondrian initially worked as a primary school teacher, but painted as a hobby. His early pieces are of a naturalistic and impressionistic styles, often of landscapes of the places he grew up in. In he met the American artist Harry Holtzman and the English painter Ben Nicholson. Nicholson urged him to publish his essay “ Plastic Art and Pure Plastic Art,” Mondrian’s first essay in English, in the international publication Circle, of which Nicholson was coeditor.
