EARLY MONDRIAN Painting 1900-1905
David Zwirner is pleased to present an exhibition of early paintings by Dutch painter Piet Mondrian (1872-1944) at the gallery’s London location. Curated by Karsten Schubert, the exhibition will provide a concise view of the artist’s gurative landscape paintings from 1900-1905, highlighting the period prior to his involvement with De Stijl and Neo-Plasticism, for which he is most known. The selection of works, which depict the Dutch countryside outside of Amsterdam, reflect Mondrian’s lifelong interest in nature and represent some of the earliest examples in his evolution toward increasingly geometric abstractions. This is the rst exhibition ever to focus on this particular period of Mondrian’s oeuvre, and the rst presentation of the artist’s work at the gallery.
