Mondrian II Nicholson: In Parallel, Courtauld Gallery, London
Mondrian II Nicholson: In Parallel, Courtauld Gallery, London

This exhibition explores the largely untold relationship between Piet Mondrian and Ben Nicholson during the 1930's. At this time the two artists were leading forces of abstract art in Europe.

Their friendship culminated with Mondrian moving to London in 1938, at Nicholson's invitation, where the two worked in neighbouring Hampstead studios at the centre of an international community of avant-garde artists. 

The exhibition brings together an extraordinary group of major paintings and reliefs to explore the parallel paths Mondrian and Nicholson charted during this exciting decade. It reveals how each was driven by a profound belief in the potential of abstract art to create new forms of beauty and visual power. 

This is a unique opportunity to experience some of the greatest works ever produced by these two exceptional artists.
