Piet Mondrian (7 March 1872 – 1 February 1944), was a Dutch painter. He was a
contributor to the De Stijl art movement and group.
Mondrian evolved a non-representational form which he termed neoplasticism.
This consisted of white ground, upon which he painted a grid of vertical and horizontal black lines and the three primary colors.

Mondrian chose to distill his representations of the world to their basic vertical and horizontal elements, which represented the two essential opposing forces: the positive and the negative, the dynamic and the static, the masculine and the feminine. The dynamic balance of his compositions reflect what he saw as the universal balance of these forces.
