Since we moved into the virtual communication era, it will appear that paperweights have become useless and even perhaps inappropriate. However, paperweights prevented papers from blowing away and also had a decorative purpose. Nowadays, paperweights are only decorative or corporate objects that are often presented as awards used for a decorative purpose in the house, the office or to symbolize a special goal achievement.
In his career and in his life Mondrian went through different phases. He started with classic landscape painting with a realist style and refined portraits with numerous details. Then in the search of his own style and true expression he was enlightened by simplicity. He re-found himself in a painting style based on essential shapes and basic colors. This would turn out to be the peak of his artistic career and what he eventually became famous for. He decided to strip down his style from all unnecessary addition and artifacts. In his quest for purity, he started to work on compositions only built with primary colors and geometric lines. This new minimalist approach was to him the best representation of aesthetics.
