Blotkamp, Carel. MONDRIAN: The Art of Destruction. 264 pp. with over 180 illustrations, including 70 in color. 4to, cloth. New York, Abrams, 1995.
A substantial survey of Piet Mondrian's (1872-1944) work, exploring his profound influence on the development of abstract painting and sculpture, and on decorative, industrial, and commercial art of every kind. This new monograph is the first comprehensive study on Mondrian to be published in nearly twenty-five years, and it offers a reappraisal of the artist based not only the latest research but also on previously unexamined letters. A major exhibition of Mondrian's work will be opening later this spring at the National Gallery, and in September ('95) at the Museum of Modern Art.
