A bit of a visual overview of the Spiritual in Modern Art (part 2)

Georgia O'Keefe -

"Jack-in-the-Pulpit No. IV" 1930

"Black Mesa Landscape, New Mexico / Out Back of Marie's II" 1930

Arthur Dove -

"Me and the Moon" 1937

Piet Mondrian -
I learned he is attempting to discuss theosophic philosophy (a branch of western mysticism popular at the time) through his art. Think the way the Lakota use color on the alter to express their beliefs. Something like that.

"Tableau no. 2 / Composition no. V." 1914

"Composition with Red, Blue and Yellow" 1930

Paul Klee -

"Visual Music" 1922
