In Mondrian’s Studio

A captivating film that retraces the intellectual and human process that led Dutch painter Piet Mondrian (1872-1944) to geometric abstraction, the highly characteristic style that made him one of the major figures of the international  avant-garde art movement.

Mondrian invented an original, universal language of geometric shapes and primary colours in the early 1920’s.

Filmed in an exact replica of his studio in Paris, this docu-fiction brings Mondrian back to life.
