Dutch painter Piet Mondrian (1872–1944) was one of the most important contributors to the development of abstract art at the beginning of the 20th century. This brand new exhibition, which commemorates the 70th anniversary of the artist’s death, provides fresh insights into Mondrian’s practice and explores his relationship with architecture and urbanism.
Mondrian and his Studios considers not only Mondrian’s importance in the field of abstraction, but also the relationship between his iconic artworks and the space around them. Mondrian’s studios in Amsterdam, Paris and New York all reflected different stages of the painter’s way of thinking and of his intentions.
This special exhibition will consider the relationship between Mondrian’s artworks and the space around them. Focusing on this connection between painting and architecture after Mondrian’s move to Paris in 1911, a major exhibition highlight will be a life size reconstruction of his Paris Studio which will allow visitors to immerse themselves in Mondrian’s creative world.
With its black floor and white walls hung with moveable panels of red, yellow and blue, the studio at Rue du Départ was not just a place for making Mondrians. It was a Mondrian – and a generator of Mondrians

The exhibition also features a diverse group of major abstract paintings. Tate Liverpool’s waterfront location provides the perfect setting for Mondrian’s 1914 series Pier and Ocean, which will be presented for visitors alongside the stunning views of the former Cunard liner piers seen from the fourth floor riverside galleries.
