The Dutch painter Piet Mondrian came from an artistic background. Both his father and his uncle were artists and Piet was encouraged to draw and paint from an early age. Early works painted while Mondrian was working as a primary school teacher, are representational and show the influence that Pointillism, Cubism and Fauvism had on the young artist. By the early 1910s however, Mondrian had rejected representational art and was moving towards a pure abstraction which would inform his artwork for the rest of his life. After the end of the First World War, Mondrian lived in Paris; as the fascist threat grew in the 1930s, Mondrian moved, first to London, then to New York, where he died aged 71 in 1944.
