While apparently unrelated to his later De Stijl paintings of black and white squares and primary colors, this pastel shows the importance that detailed observation and the landscape held for the young Mondrian. During these early years, he often traveled to small farmsteads outside of Amsterdam to paint the watery landscape and towering trees that define the Dutch lowlands. Like Monet, Mondrian often worked in series, painting the same group of trees and farm buildings from different perspectives. Untitled (Landscape) introduces the viewer to a side of Mondrian that few are familiar with, but that proves his thorough mastery of naturalism.

The work is signed with the original spelling of the artist's name-Mondriaan-which appears on the artist's canvases up into the early 1910s.
