This book accompanied the exhibition Mondrian and his Studios at Tate Liverpool (6 June – 5 October 2014) and explores Mondrian’s three studios as insights into the man and his practices as an artist.
Mondrian’s relevance today is not only to do with his pioneering role in the definition and conceptualisation of abstraction, but also with the complex relationship between his artworks, the space around them and the belief that they were conceived to inspire. His studios in Amsterdam, Paris and New York reflect different stages of the painter’s way of thinking and of his intentions. Each was designed to allow the artist to perform a clearly defined intellectual and social role.
As well as focussing on his studios, the book also explores Mondrian’s broader relationship with architecture and urbanism, particularly through a comparison of his earlier Parisian works and those made in the frenetic modern cityscape of New York.
Many of Mondrian’s best-known Neo-Plasticism works are included in full colour, along with a plethora of images of the artist in his studio.
Includes an essay by Hans Janssen and a conversation between Hans Janssen, Michael White and Nancy Troy.
Edited by Francesco Manacorda, Artistic Director of Tate Liverpool and Michael White, Senior Lecturer in History of Art at the University of York.
