Disney Original Art - Mondrian Mickey

Piet Mondrian was a contributor to the "De Stijl" ("the style") Art movement. De Stijl was a movement that held a utopian ideology of order and harmony. The geometry of the straight line, the reduction of form and colour into primary basics and pathways of only vertical and horizontal  directions communicated a sense of direction and harmony.

Mondrian, while vastly popular in his day, flourished most significantly following his death when in 1965 Algerian born designer Yves Saint Laurent produced a wool jersey with the replica of Mondrian's composition series. From this collection produced the trend of colour blocking which  spread the Mondrian style through fashion, television, housewares and beyond.
