About Mondrian Soap Dish – Neutral Colors
The beautiful design on this resin-lacquered wood Mondrian soap dish is inspired in the 20th-century Dutch painter‘s work “Composition with Red, Yellow, and Blue” (1930). This luxury product is crafted using the centuries-old tradition of hand pouring several layers of lacquer. Each layer is individually hand-polished taking several days, to create the unique, deep, rich finish which is impervious to heat and alcohol. The fine patina, created through this hand-crafted process, will give you years of enjoyment. Permission from the Mondrian Trust was acquired to create this piece of art. This oil painting consists of geometric figures, in particular variations of squares and rectangles. The painting was born from the ‘De Stijl’ movement, one of the major modern movements focused on Neo-Plasticism and co-founded by Piet Mondrian. The horizontal lines signify a sense of rest and calm, while the vertical lines communicate a sense of height. Working together as an overall piece, the lines create a sense of stability and solidarity. Mondrian was attempting to portray this sense of stability through his paintings and evoke feelings of a utopian society rather than face the instability of the world in its current state. 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 decided to strip down his style from all unnecessary addition and artifacts in his quest for purity and started to work on compositions only built with primary colors and geometric lines.
