Happy birthday to Piet Mondrian, who was born in Amersfoort, Netherlands in 1872! Mondrian is best known as the creator of perhaps the most rigorously abstract paintings of the first half of the twentieth century. Working with only the most basic elements-straight lines and primary colors, he strove to create pure objective art that he believed would change the world.”Composition with Blue and Yellow,” 1932, Piet Mondrian
