The work of Piet Mondrian (1872-1944) played a crucial role in shaping the avant-garde art of the 20th century. Each section of this visual journey through Mondrian's life and career takes its inspiration from the location of one of the artist's studios, tracing his path from Amsterdam to Paris, and via the Dutch village of Laren to London and New York. Each of these locations represents a distinct stage in the development of Mondrian's art: from the naturalistic paintings of the 1890s and the experimental neo-Impressionist works of the early twentieth century to his involvement with the De Stijl movement and his famous grid paintings, and finally the bold dynamism of his late work in the United States, inspired by the rhythms of jazz and the buzzing metropolis. As Mondrian's art took the simplification of form to an extreme, the walls of his studios became an ever-changing surface made up of cardboard rectangles painted in primary colours, white and grey.

'A thorough account of Mondrian's career and creative process, seen through the lens of the spaces that were important to him ... far more than just another account of an artist whose path has been trodden many times before' - Artbook Review 'Building on an exhibition at Tate Liverpool last year that considered the mature phase of his career, the new book expands the narrative to consider his early days in Amsterdam ... it also includes excerpts from Mondrian's writings, never before published in English' - Daily Telegraph
