Pieter Cornelis Mondriaan (later known as Piet Mondrian) was a Dutch painter who lived from 1872 to 1944. He is probably best known for his geometric works using blocks of primary colours.

This illusion is based on Composition with Yellow, Blue and Red, which is currently held as part of the Tate Collection.

The colours of the Mondrian painting are set against a stark white background. It is extremely difficult to view this illusion to see the white in the same way. The yellow, red and blue blocks are easy to see in the illusion but the white areas are usually seen with a hint of their surrounding colour.

When you look directly at the illusion you see stripes in the colours used by Mondrian and also a green stripe.
