Piet Mondriaan (later Mondrian) was a Dutch painter who began his life as a painter of landscapes and portraits who evolved to become one of the most important abstract painters of the 20th century. Barbara Mason discusses his life and focuses on his later work, although the lesson is full of his earlier paintings. His use of form and color was an inspiration to numerous fashion designers and commercial artists for years after his death in 1944.
