About "Composition II in Red, Blue, and Yellow"

This well-known work of art by Dutch painter Piet Mondrian is a product of the Dutch De Stijl movement.

Mondrian decides to limit his formal vocabulary to the three primary colors (red, blue, and yellow), the three primary values (black, white, and gray), and the two primary directions (horizontal and vertical).

It is arguable that all elements found within "Composition" are contrasting and thus indicative of the inner harmony of life that lies beneath the surface.
