Mondrian and Colour

Turner Contemporary

Gallery, Room 1

Colour as the Material of Landscapes


Up - bottom - Room 2 - 3 - 4 - 5

The original gallery listing was in catalogue sequence, split over two pages. I made it back down to Margate on the prepenultimate day of the show and noted the hanging sequence. Most of the rooms have a title and a paragraph or so of explanation, but not all the rooms are that 'distinct': they merge into each other.
