While the continuity within his entire evolution is fully explored, particular attention is paid to moments of dramatic change: his discovery of modernism and later of Cubism; his struggle toward abstraction; his invention of the ‘neoplastic’ style for which he is best known; and his dynamic development of that style from the 1930s until the end of his career. Almost half of Mondrian’s finished canvases from the 1930s and 1940s are presented in sequence for the first time. Emphasis on Mondrian’s pictorial development also involves an emphasis on his working process.” This is a heavy book and may require extra shipping charges especially to International destinations.
