Piet Mondrian
Sun, Church in Zeeland, 1909-1910, Tate Modern Art Gallery, London.
Mondrian visited the Zeeland region of the Dutch coast each summer during 1908-10. There, he painted towering buildings such as this church at Zoutelande. Contrasting oranges and blues create an impression of strong, flooding sunlight. This combines with the monumental scale of the tower to create a powerful, mystical mood. Mondrian later explained that pure colour was the means “to find a new way to express the beauty of nature”.
