'Mondrian and His Studios' explores not only the significance of Piet Mondrian's work in the development of abstract art, but also the relationship between his paintings and the space around them. The exhibition demonstrates the contrast between the artworks Mondrian created in Amsterdam, Paris and New York, as we see the development in his ideas and the impact of his different surroundings. A life size reconstruction of Mondrian's Paris studio allows visitors a chance to absorb themselves in Mondrian's world. Together with a companion exhibition, Mondrian and Colour which runs at Turner Contemporary until September 21st, the exhibition marks the 70th anniversary of Mondrian's death.
