Keep your glasses safe within a sturdy case and matching lens cloth, featuring Composition with Black, Red, Grey, Yellow and Blue, 1920s, by De Stijl artist Piet Mondrian. Looking closely at this work, you’ll notice the subtle encroaches of disorder: grey smudges muddying white, uneven brushstrokes tracing the artist’s hand – precision and irregularity in careful balance. Inspired by a 1911 Cubist exhibition and a move to Paris the following year, Mondrian shifted his attention toward purifying painting and reducing it to its most basic elements: surface, colour, form. This work is a rare surviving sketch of the artist’s, which demonstrates that rather than being formulaic, his geometric compositions were, in fact, intuitive.
