Lines, Lines and More Lines
This painting is created by Piet Mondrian, who utilizes lines and shapes in all of his abstract pieces. This painting is made up of nothing but parallel lines from horizontal and vertical to make all of the shapes, squares and rectangles. A majority of the shapes are created using the negative space, or the white background. Only six of the shapes are filled with primary colors. But the bottom shapes, (the three blue rectangles and the small red rectangle to the bottom right corner) have two edges on each side of the shapes, since these shapes are created only by the paint itself.
