This particular painting came in 1930 and marked the end of this period in his work.

The bold colours, clear defining lines of separation and simple forms became the signature style of Mondrian, over shadowing his work with landscapes, portraits and later abstract and cubist work.

In has been said that this painting captures the essence of this period in his life, whilst Victory Boogie Woogie and Broadway Boogie Woogie successfully illustrated his time living in New York in the 1940s.

Rather than lines, Mondrian meant his black areas to be genuine shapes themselves, sometimes not quite reaching the edge of the canvas. The artist would also carefully place his non-white areas in order to provide a balance to the work.

Those able to see this, and similar, artworks from Mondrian will notice how he stubtly varied his blocks of white, black and dark greys in order to create different feelings across his compositions. Digital images can't really illustrate this accurately.

When viewing the originals up close, these seemingly basic geometric arrangements suddenly reveal intricate brush work and personal touches from an artist who poured his heart into every work, be it his earlier landscapes and portraits, to his later abstract compositions.
