Bolotowsky, who was of Russian origin and lived in the United States as of 1923, began producing abstract paintings in the 1930s. In the mid-1940s he began to create works based on Piet Mondrian’s principles of Neoplasticism and ultimately became Mondrian’s most influential follower in the United States. Bolotowsky combined his “shaped” canvases – here rhomboid-shaped – with simplified compositions whose plain horizontal and vertical surfaces were indebted to Neoplasticism’s goal of a harmonic ideal of order and balance.
