Mill in sunlight, after Piet Mondrian, 2007
Chromogenic print mounted on aluminum
246 × 180 cm
The windmill theme, which has such an important place in Mondrian’s work, led him to create one of his masterpieces in the new luminist style. Of all his luminist works, this picture perhaps exhibits the characteristics of the style most clearly, not only the technical, external characteristics, but also the inner, spiritual attitude that is so sharply rendered by the blazing sunlight.
