In researching the work of Piet Mondrian, I was surprised to discover this painting, so different than the abstract geometric work for which he is known. Painted in 1909, “View from the Dunes with Beach and Piers, Domburg” is included in the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC. As an antidote to the hectic pace of the holidays, I offer you Mondrian’s peaceful beach. Just you, your thoughts, and the sunset. Enjoy.
