Milton Glaser about the Kandinsky print:
I’ve attempted to paraphrase a variety of Kandinsky’s abstract geometric themes to create this portrait.
Here the play and variation of the red outline as it impinges upon a variety of colored shapes is the central graphic idea.

Milton Glaser about the Mondrian print:
I’ve tried to convey the sense of austerity, elegance, and ideological purity that Mondrian pursued in his work.
The background pattern derives from details of one of his paintings rotated and repeated.
