Hi Micheal,

Mondrian changed his name intentionally after 1907 from Mondriaan to
Mondrian. Please see Michel Seuphor, "Piet Mondrian: Life and Work",
Themes and Hudson, London, 1956, Appendix 'Mondrian's Signatures'.
This change is reported to be because of his intention to be
international painter and some scholar argues that he wanted to sever
the bondage with his stringent Calvinist father.

I browsed your homepage. Looks very interesting. Thank you.
