This will be an Art Exhibition. All about how simple yet beautiful art can be.
I will be focusing on abstract pieces, that focus on simple shapes and colors.
Some art I will be reviewing and sharing with you will be from some AMAZING artists. Such as: Edward Weston, Barnett Newman, Jean Hans and many more! I hope you enjoy this glimpse of art history...

Composition with Red, Blue and Yellow,1930, Oil on Canvas, 1' 6 1/8" X 1' 6 1/8" -Piet Mondrian
Mondrian (March 7, 1872 – February
1, 1944) was a Dutch painter. He was a
contributor to theDe Stijlart movement. He evolved anon-representationalform which he termedNeo-Plasticism. This consisted of
white ground, upon which was painted a grid of vertical and horizontal black
lines and the three primary colors. In 1892,
Mondrian entered the Academy for Fine Art inAmsterdam. He began
his career as a teacher inPrimary
Education, but he also practicedpainting. Most of his work from this period isNaturalisticorImpressionistic, consisting largely oflandscapes.
"The truly modern artist is aware of abstraction in an emotion of beauty."
This piece is a great addition to my exhibit, the colors, abstract quality and thought provoking theme .
