Mill in Sunlight - Description

The Dutch painter Piet Mondrian is best known for his painting of bold, abstract geometric patterns. His paintings of black lines enclosing white space and bright blocks of blue, red and yellow are beloved and much copied. Mondrian was an accomplished Impressionist painter, however, which is evident in "Mill in Sunlight," which was painted early in Mondrian's career. Here, the viewer is treated to an explosion of orange, yellow and red. The sky is dappled with blue and yellow, seeming to indicate either sunrise or sunset. The mill is rendered in blue and red, the contrasting colors drawing in the eye. The windmill propellers extend in all directions, and appear to be still. Near the bottom of the mill, a grid is drawn in blue horizontal and vertical lines, perhaps indicating a door and stairs. This same grid appears beneath the mill, perhaps as a reflection in the water. A small waterwheel is shown to the left of the image, painted quickly in red. The ground is rendered in yellow and orange, with brushstrokes pointing toward the mill itself. The painting is signed in the lower right corner. The paint is applied heavily and quickly in "Mill in Sunlight", in true Impressionist style, giving the impression of the painter trying to capture a moment that is rapidly fading and dying. "Mill in Sunlight" is beloved for its use of autumnal colors, bright brushstrokes and use of contrast.
