Follow the impressive career of Dutch painter Piet Mondrian ranging from Amsterdam to New York, Jazz to architecture, and literature to painting with art historian and expert Sabry Amrouissi.

Part of the 'big three' of Dutch painters (Rembrandt and van Gogh being the other two) Piet Mondrian was present and involved in all the groundbreaking movements of modern art before and after the turn of the 19th century. In this conversation, we will follow that road; one which ended in him making art truly abstract.

Together, we will follow his career, from the early beginnings as a classic impressionist/symbolist painter, his stint as a cubist culminating in his membership of groundbreaking artist group 'The Stijl', to his revolutionary and famous abstract work in primary colors. From Amsterdam to Paris, and from London to New-York, Piet Mondrian's career is essential in the development of modern art, paving the road for many abstract artists after him.

Led by Amsterdam-Art-Historian Sabry Amroussi we will travel the road modern art took via this unique artist career spanning more than 60 years. From Jazz to architecture, from literature to painting, Amroussi's passion for this subject will bring this unique period in art history to life, and participants in this conversation will come away with a profoundly different understanding of this period and important artist.

This conversation is suitable for all ages.

90 minutes, including a 30 minute Q&A.

Excellent presentation of the development of Mondrian's work. I learned a lot I did not know. Would have liked to know more about the "spirituality" in his work, i.e., how, and more importantly, if he achieves it. Also, was he aware of Malovich's work?
