Piet Mondrian (1872-1944) was a Dutch painter. Born Pieter Cornelis Mondriaan, the artist changed the spelling of his surname to Mondrian after he relocated to Paris in 1911. Returning to the Netherlands a few years later, Mondrian became a founding member of the De Stijl art movement and evolved a technique became known as Neo-Plasticism: a white ground upon which is painted a grid of black lines and the three primary colors.
- When Baby Kermit wipes away Baby Animal's Jackson Pollock painting in the Muppet Babies episode "The Muppet Museum of Art", he reveals Mondrian's Composition with White, Red and Yellow.
- In a late 1990s Sesame Street insert (First: Episode 3569), Baby Bear and Papa Bear visit the Museum of Modern Art and observe Mondrian's painting "Broadway Boogie Woogie", which is full of rectangles, squares and colors that remind Baby Bear of the rectangles and squares that are all around us.
- The coloring book Museum of Monster Art featured a spoof of a Mondrian painting, with Grover observing Tableau No. IV; Lozenge Composition with Red, Gray, Blue, Yellow, and Black.
