What was this man trying to say, Fantasy Bob has been wondering. What is the emotional charge that underlies these apparently emotionless works?
Fantasy Bob's studies suggest that Mondrian is a tragic figure. His work shows his hopeless pursuit of an idea. It is sad beyond measure that Mondrian never quite attained the perfection he was looking for. He got off on the wrong track by making his lines black - white is a better bet - and by using only the primary colours. Had he corrected these faults he would have created many more perfect masterpieces like the one below.
