And then there was Mondrian (March 7, 1872 - 1944) - who went from being a quasi-Victorian figure to being a complete De Stijl Modernist when he utterly gave up on representation as a principle in art.

Piet Mondrian was a Dutch painter. His paintings are very famous all over the world. He contributed to the De Stijl art movement and he painted in a non-representational form which was called Neo-Plasticicm. This kind of art movement or form consisted of a white ground where a grid of vertical and horizontal black lines were painted and colored by the three primary colors.
