Mondrian’s World: From Primary Colors to the Boogie Woogie - The New York Times
It has often been assumed that Piet Mondrian was a cold, calculating, detached kind of man. Look at his paintings, his primary color planes divided by black lines, so formal and rectilineal: Hello, is there anyone in there?

But it turns out that the Dutch painter was quite a vibrant character, apparently a lover of many women, who went out dancing at jazz clubs almost every night, and constantly experimented with new forms of art and new ways of seeing.
