The enduring relevance of Dutch-born artist Piet Mondrian (1872–1944) speaks to his pioneering role in abstract art, but also to the complex relationship between his artworks, the space around them, and the belief that they were conceived to inspire. His studios in Amsterdam, Paris, and New York refl ect di erent stages of the painter’s way of thinking as well as his evolving intentions. Each studio was designed to allow the artist to perform a clearly defi ned intellectual and social role. An eye-opening look into the spaces that inspired him, this book also explores Mondrian’s broader relationship with architecture and urbanism, particularly through a comparison of his earlier Parisian works and those made in the frenetic modern cityscape of New York. Vividly illustrated with many of Mondrian’s best-known works

and photographs of the artist in his studios, this intriguing book sheds new light on his creative process.
