The Piet Mondrian exhibition has opened at The Courtauld Gallery and it displaying works from the two years the abstract artist spent in the UK in the late 1930s collaborating with Ben Nicholson. It was an exciting time for both artists during which they pushed the boundaries of modern art to create their own concept of beauty.

Yves Saint Laurent took huge inspiration from the artist and created the Mondrian dress in 1965 which has since become one of the most iconic mod dress and indeed graphically printed dresses of all time.

Now on at Somerset House, The Strand, London.
