Square (14 x 14 cm) single postcard featuring Composition with Double Line and Yellow, 1932 by Piet Mondrian part of the National Galleries of Scotland collection.
This is one of the earliest of Mondrian's so-called 'tramline' paintings. In this painting, Mondrian created a perfect balance between the colour and the horizontal and vertical lines, so that no one element dominated. He painted with great precision, although he did so intuitively by trial and error, not through mathematical calculation.
This painting formerly belonged to the artist Winifred Nicholson, who acquired it directly from Mondrian.
Piet Mondrian (7 March 1872 – 1 February 1944), was a Dutch painter and art theoretician who is regarded as one of the greatest artists of the 20th century. He is known for being one of the pioneers of 20th-century abstract art.
