Piet Mondrian was born in the Netherlands. He’s a renowned Dutch painter. This particular painter was born on March 7th, 1872. He died on February 1st, 1944. A lot of great artists died in 1944, and Mondrian is just one of them. Fun fact: did you know that his last name was originally spelled Mondriaan? He dropped the second “a” in 1906. This was done to give him the Parisian avant-garde feel to his name that he was looking for.

He moved to Paris in 1911, and entered the art scene. He started with cubism, and stayed with it until he passed away. Early paintings actually are more abstract than anything else, but once he found cubism, he found it too complicated. He stayed with a simplified version of the art form. And the rest, as they say, is history.
