Piet Mondrian (born March 7, 1872) was a Dutch painter who played a pioneering role in bringing art forms, such as ‘Neo-Plasticism’ and ‘Cubism,’ into limelight. Among the two published studies is Rumball, 79 which studied nine schizophrenia patients and found that in all the nine patients energy” (sluggishness) improved and this was implicated as improvement in negative symptoms. Study by De souse and De souse 100 is the largest randomized control trial in terms of sample size (272 chronic schizophrenia patients). Music therapy given as an adjunct to medications found that scores on positive and negative syndrome scales and on the anergia, activation and depression subscales of the positive and negative syndrome scale (PANSS) improved significantly and also were significantly better than in the control group.

Robert Motherwell was a young American ‘Abstract Expressionist’ painter, printer, collage maker, and author. The exterior edges show the wooden structure which underlies the quillwork. A variety of traditional design motifs including star patterns, circles, moose, flora, fauna, and waves cover the surface. The overall design is symmetrical. Colours are generally cool except for a few areas of earth tones. Forms: The repeated geometric forms are identical in size, shape, colour, and texture. The forms are dramatized by light which falls on them. Movement: The non-stable appearance of the forms, as if they were caught in a moment of incomplete action, creates tension.
