In the second lecture of this four-part series, John Walsh recounts how Cubism opened for Mondrian new ways of representing the world. The artist took what he needed, then went far beyond. His articles in the magazine De Stijl (The Style), which describe a humanistic vision of art’s role in society, inspired other artists and designers. Generously sponsored by the Martin A. Ryerson Lectureship Fund and the John Walsh Lecture and Education Fund.
