The Red Tree By: Piet Mondrian

          This is a post- impressionist painting by Piet Mondrian called The Red Tree which was completed in 1910 and is an oil on canvas. This painting resides in the Haags Gemeentemuseum, The Hague, Netherlands. This was the first painting in which Mondrian implemented his color palette of red, blue, and yellow. I chose this painting because I really love how he used the colors throughout the canvas, and I also like how you are able to see some of the brush strokes throughout the tree and the ground.
