This is Karl Knaths' Table Top.
During the 1930s, Knaths also developed a complex theoretical basis for his painting. He began to create his paintings by following strict rules of composition and color, inspired by the ideas of such artists as Piet Mondrian and Wassily Kandinsky. Despite Knath's innovative endeavor, he worked in relative isolation for much of his career, making only occasional trips to New York or Boston, but never travelled to Europe. - Julie Heller
