About Piet Mondrian
Piet Mondrian, the Dutch painter and co-founder of the artistic movement “De Stijl” is one of the most influential artists of the 20th century because of his aesthetic conceptions of driving away from figurative painting and regarding abstract painting as a truer representation of reality. De Stijl which was co-founded with Theo Van Doesburg, argued for a renewed form of representation in the plastic arts (i.e. Painting, Sculpture) known as Neo-Plasticism through his emphasis on geometry and pure abstraction. During the late 19th century Helena Blavatsky developed the theosophical movement, which was interested in finding the common grounds between different belief systems like Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism and, Judaism in an attempt to find a unifying spiritual essence of humankind and spirituality. In 1909 Mondrian joined the Dutch branch of the Theosophical Society and later merged his aesthetic ideals and quest for pure abstraction as a universal language with those of theosophy.
