Composition 10 in Black and White

This reproduction on canvas of Composition 10 in Black and White by Piet Mondriaan is made in close cooperation with the Krӧller-Müller Museum, where the original painting is hanging. Piet Mondriaan was born in 1872 in Amersfoort, and he was introduced to art from a very young age with his father being a drawing teacher and his uncle who was a painter. In 1910 he moved to Paris and there he was inspired by cubism, after which his paintings would rapidly transform into complete abstractions of nature. He was also a spiritual person and a member of the Theosophical movement. About his vision on art and spirituality he said; 'To approach the spiritual in art, one will make as little use as possible of reality, because reality is opposed to the spiritual. We find ourselves in the presence of an abstract art. Art should be above reality, otherwise it would have no value for man' Composition 10 In black and white is the first painting in which Mondriaan uses exclusively black and white.

This artwork is an abstract, elliptical composition of short, horizontal and vertical black lines. Although the starting point of the painting is still the visible reality, it's clear that Mondriaan is no longer interested in the recognizable representation of nature. He was mainly concerned with the bringing together of opposites, the horizontal and vertical, to thereby express a general idea of harmony and rhythm.

The rolling waves can be seen in the long, straight horizontals in the middle of the painting, while the abstraction of a breakwater is recognizable in the vertical lines at the bottom of the painting. Many people all over the world still refer to this artwork as "Peer and Ocean".
