Mondrian Fights Back!

With all the hoopla over the latest incarnation of Mondrian on the web (Pac-Mondrian), I went searching for the real thing
and discovered “The Transatlanic Paintings” web site.
It just doesn’t get better than this. This site features photomicrographs taken with a 35-mm camera mounted on the microscope, photomacrographs, infra-red photographs and details of the 17 paintings which the Dutch Master re-worked after his move to New York City.

As a student of Harry Holtzman in the early seventies, I gained my earliest introduction to Mondrian, abstract and modern art in general.
If you have some time to browse, check out this overly obsessive collection of "Mondriana".
