Mondrian began painting around 1900 in the Impressionist style of the Hague School. From about 1908 he worked under the influence of Vincent van Gogh and Fauvism. After moving to Paris in 1911, he turned to Cubism under the influence of Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso. Beginning in the 1920s, Mondrian created the well-known strictly geometric paintings attributed to Neo-Plasticism. Their characteristic structure of a black grid, combined with rectangular surfaces in primary colors, leads to their inclusion in art, architecture, fashion, advertising and popular culture up to the present day. As an art theorist and co-founder of the artists' association De Stijl, Mondrian wrote, among other things, Le Néo-Plasticisme, which was published in 1925 in German translation as Bauhaus Book No. 5 under the title Neue Gestaltung. Neoplasticism, Nieuwe Beelding. He loosened up the works newly created in exile in New York from 1940 in a mosaic-like manner into the primary colors and in this way overcame the earlier strict compositions in favor of the new musical rhythmization of the motif.

Our Mission and Actions

At THE ART HUB, our mission is initially focused on addressing a profound imbalance within the art world, specifically catering to women artists. In the current landscape, a mere 5% to 15% of artworks traded at auctions are created by women, starkly contrasted by the overwhelming 85% to 95% of works by male artists. This disparity is not only confined to auctions but is also prevalent in exhibitions, where male-created art significantly overshadows that of their female counterparts.

By concentrating our efforts on female artists, THE ART HUB aims to counteract this imbalance and champion women within the art community. This initiative is designed to amplify the visibility of women artists, making their creations more accessible to a wider audience, and ultimately striving for a more balanced representation of genders within art auctions and exhibitions. By prioritizing women in art, our platform boldly advocates for equality and diversity within the art sector, signaling a commitment to reshaping and enriching the cultural landscape.
