¿Picasso o Mondrian?

… en los ojos Picasso (pero parece que yo soy un Mondrian, me lo han dicho). Capítulo 21.

Piet Mondrian
Broadway Boogie Woogie
1942-43. Óleo sobre tela, 127 x 127 cm.

Escaping to New York after the start of World War II, Mondrian delighted in the city's architecture, and, an adept dancer, was fascinated by American jazz, particularly boogie–woogie. He saw the syncopated beat, irreverent approach to melody, and improvisational aesthetic of boogie–woogie as akin to his own "destruction of natural appearance; and construction through continuous opposition of pure means—dynamic rhythm." Bands of stuttering chromatic pulses, paths of red, yellow, and blue interrupted by light gray suggest the city's grid and the movement of traffic, while the staccato vibration of colors evokes the syncopation of jazz and the blinking electric lights of Broadway.

Mondrian. Me encataría ser más Picasso, pero sé que en mis adentros soy más cabeza cuadrada que un Mondrian
