About this artwork

Because Piet Mondrian depicted this specific farm no fewer than 13 times, determining when he actually made this drawing is difficult. Prior to 1908, he rarely dated his work; moreover, his artistic evolution is hard to trace chronologically since he made two kinds of work simultaneously: formally experimental landscapes and—forced by his meager finances to appeal to buyers—naturalistic scenes. Based on stylistic similarities to other works of that time, Robert Welsh, a scholar of Mondrian’s early work, dated the sheet to around 1905-06.
