Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Piet Mondrian, the painter of architectonic grids who seemed to reject nature, had early on steeped himself in the study of landscapes and flowers. His haunting pictures of farms, windmills and factories treat nature as a dynamic interplay of forces. Influenced by Helena Blavatsky's Theosophical movement, the fastidious Dutch artist of strict Calvinist upbringing turned to mystical introspection, producing symbolist images like Dying Sunflower (1908). After experimenting with pointillist color and spare seascapes, Mondrian, who believed he had been reincarnated many times, moved to Paris and discovered cubism, which helped him to depict the underlying rhythm and structure of what he saw. From there it seems but a hop to Broadway Boogie-Woogie (1943). Milner ( Vladimir Tatlin and the Russian Avant-Garde ) has produced a masterful account of Mondrian's artistic and spiritual growth, a marvelously illustrated monograph that gives us Mondrian whole--as mystic, philosopher and individualist.

'A splendid book, and one we needed. The presentation is as good as can be with plates close to where the works are discussed.' (Royal Academy Magazine)

Format: Paperback
Mondrian's work is, in my opinion, best appreciated in context. He didn't simply arrive at perpendicular lines as form overnight, and this book demonstrates how Mondrian evolved as an artist over time. The text is highly readable, never too lofty, and quite fascinating at times. Those who are not entirely familiar with Mondrian's career or who want insight into his vision as an artist would do best to consult this text and its many color plates.

This book is a comprehensive overview of Mondrian's art, from his first works to his last. It is also quite readable - one of the few art books I've read from the beginning to the end. Milner does an excellent job explaining Mondrian's development as an artist, as well as the philosophy behind his mature work. Far from being simplistic and easy, Mondrian's art illustrated his quest to attain perfect balance in composition and color. As he wrote in 1917, "...extreme opposites in complete harmony, include all other relationships."

The color reproductions in the book are very good, and there are plenty to admire. I only wish it included even more!
