Mondrian’s arrival in London in 1938 confirmed the capital as a centre for the avant-garde. In 1936 he had shown this and other works in Abstract & Concrete, London’s first international exhibition of abstract art.

Mondrian’s non-figurative paintings – planes of primary colour with black and white – convey what he described as a ‘dynamic equilibrium’, which he hoped would work on the individual spirit and have wider social implications.
