Oostzijdse Mill along the River Gein by Moonlight, Piet Mondriaan, c. 1903

Oostzijdse Mill along the River Gein by Moonlight, Piet Mondriaan, c. 1903

oil on canvas, h 63cm × w 75.4cm. More details

This landscape clearly reveals how indebted Mondriaan was to the Hague School as a young artist. A few years earlier, he had copied Gabriëls’ In the Month of July in the Rijksmuseum (on view in this gallery). Although the compositions resemble each other, the general impression in each case is entirely different. Mondri-aan modified the lines and colours in order to create a non-realistic, decorative painting.
