Dutch painter Piet Mondrian died in New York City in 1944, but his work and legacy have been far from static since then. From market pressures to personal relationships and scholarly agendas, posthumous factors have repeatedly transformed our understanding of his oeuvre. In The Afterlife of Piet Mondrian, Nancy J. Troy explores the controversial circumstances under which our conception of the artistís work has been shaped since his death, an account that describes money-driven interventions and personal and professional rivalries in forthright detail.
Troy reveals how collectors, curators, scholars, dealers and the painterís heirs all played roles in fashioning Mondrianís legacy, each with a different reason for seeing the artist through a particular lens. She shows that our appreciation of his work is influenced by how it has been conserved, copied, displayed, and publicized, and she looks at the popular appeal of Mondrianís instantly recognizable style in fashion, graphic design, and a vast array of consumer commodities. Ultimately, Troy argues that we miss the evolving significance of Mondrianís work if we examine it without regard for the interplay of canonical art and popular culture. A fascinating investigation into Mondrianís afterlife, this book casts new light on how every artistís legacy is constructed as it circulates through the art world and becomes assimilated into the larger realm of visual experience.

Nancy J. Troy is professor in the Department of Art and Art History at Stanford University and the author of The De Stijl Environment, Modernism and the Decorative Arts in France: Art Nouveau to Le Corbusier and Couture Culture: A Study of Modern Art in Fashion.
