Piet Mondrian exhibit lights up Paris' Pompidou Center through March 21

January 03, 2011|By Susan James | Special to the Los Angeles Times

The largest retrospective of the works of Dutch minimalist Piet Mondrian in nearly half a century is on exhibition at the Pompidou Center in Paris through March 21. 

Master of the black grid on white canvas set with bold panes of primary colors, Mondrian helped to change the face of modern art. His influence was felt not only in painting and sculpture but in graphic design, fashion and architecture.

Besides 100 of Mondrian's paintings, the first part of the exhibition re-creates the artist's Montparnasse studio, a 3-D rendering in interior decoration of his signature designs.

The second part of the exhibition explores the avant-garde movement De Stijl that Mondrian helped to found, focusing on works by fellow painter and designer Theo Van Doesburg and architect Gerrit Rietveld.
