Who better to inspire us than those previously inspired?  I love these quotes, and the Mondrian-styled background is just delicious.

Who’s Mondrian, you might ask?

From Wikipedia:

Pieter Cornelis “Piet” Mondriaan, after 1906 Mondrian (Dutch pronunciation: [ˈpiːt ˈmɔndriaːn], later [ˈmɔndriɔn]; March 7, 1872 – February 1, 1944), was a Dutch painter.

He was an important contributor to the De Stijl art movement and group, which was founded by Theo van Doesburg. He evolved a non-representational form which he termed Neo-Plasticism.

—————-

I have seen his work at the MoMA “His work marks the transition at the start of the 20th century from the Hague school and Symbolism to Neo-Impressionism and Cubism… Even in his lifetime he was regarded as the founder of the most modern art. His artistic integrity caused him to be honoured as a classical master by artists who were aligned with entirely different styles, as well as by musicians and architects.” (Oxford Press)

I’ve also seen homage to his his work at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
