The iconic work of Dutch artist Piet Mondrian influenced the creation of these Mondrian-inspired masterpieces. The grid-based paintings of Mondrian are what made him the grandfather of color-blocking. Mondrian used only primary colors, white space and black lines, yet managed to continue to influence contemporary society starting with Yves Saint Laurent and the fashion world.

The Yves Saint Laurent Fall 1965 Mondrian collection is immortalized in haute couture history causing countless accolades and tributes like the fluorescent electric dresses by Nicholas Saint Gregoire. The infamous artist frocks are not the only fashionable representation of Mondrian's work, as it's been featured in rockstar red carpet fashion worn by English model Alex Gerrard.

Beyond fashion, Mondrian's paintings have been featured on anything from punchy vinyl packaging to De Stijl desktop computers to dishware. Art lovers can channel the minimalist artist through these Mondrian-inspired masterpieces.
