Yes, Mondrian’s Broadway Boogie Woogie reminds me of Manhattan in the city that never sleeps, New York. The perfect grid system of streets running north to south and east to west. How could you ever get lost?
Its inhabitants focused on where they are going with a purpose in their stride. No time for the niceties. Be direct and be frank or you’ll be eaten alive as if in a Pac Man game, which I think the art also resembles!

Tonight she has prompted us with a picture of Broadway Boogie Woogie by abstract artist Piet Mondrian. She has asked us to share our feelings of this piece and if it does indeed remind us of Broadway in New York or perhaps somewhere else.
