Where Berlin - - MUSEUMS & GALLERIES -

Af­ter mov­ing to Paris in 1912, Mon­drian, in­creas­ingly in­flu­enced by Cu­bism, started to place greater em­pha­sis on struc­ture and or­ga­ni­za­tion, fa­vor­ing bold lines and the sim­pli­fi­ca­tion of land­scapes and nat­u­ral mo­tifs into ab­strac­tion. show­ing at the Martin- Gropius- Bau (p. 42), fol­lows the artis­tic begin­nings and sub­se­quent style de­vel­op­ments of the iconic master of clas­sic modernism.
