Piet Mondrian – 1918
“Warum klagen wir wegen des Sündenfalles?” – from “Das Paradies” by Franz Kafka
“Painting – which is in essence one and unchangeable – has always manifested itself in very diverse expressions. The expressions of the past – characterized by so many styles – differ only by reason of place and time, but fundamentally they are one. However they may differ in appearance, all arose from a single source: the universal, the profound essence of all existence. Thus all historical styles have striven toward this single goal: to manifest the universal.” – from “The New Plastic in Painting” by Piet Mondrian, 1917
