Mondrian doco on the box this afternoon

SBS1 is repeating the fascinating documentary In Mondrian's Studio about the eccentric and brilliant Dutch painter, a pioneer of abstraction, Piet Mondrian. Mondrian features in both of my famous lists of famous people, as a possible autist and as a synaesthete. His non-representational paintings with bold blocks of colours are not only works of art, they have become memes embedded in popular culture. I can think of no greater legacy for an artist.
