Today I am quoting a paragraph about a genius born in the Week of the Loner 3-10 March!
Piet Mondrian (1872-1944)
This Dutch painter is known for the angularity of his style — bold opaque squares factory-perfect, outlined in inorganic black, although early in his career he produced expressionistic landscapes in subtle colors. Ascetic, devoted to working in complete isolation, Mondrian arranged his studio to embody his geometric style. No natural forms were permitted within, its white walls were adorned here and there only with cardboard squares in primary colors. “He could have lived equally easily in any town in the world, so long as he had a room arranged according to these laws,” one rare visitor later noted. “It was the dwelling of a grand solitaire.”
