'A thorough account of Mondrian's career and creative process, seen
through the lens of the spaces that were important to him ... far
more than just another account of an artist whose path has been
trodden many times before' - Artbook Review
'Building on an exhibition at Tate Liverpool last year that considered the mature phase of his career, the new book expands the narrative to consider his early days in Amsterdam ... it also includes excerpts from Mondrian's writings, never before published in English' - Daily Telegraph
