Black & White Minimalism in The Israel Musuem

The name of this week's 52Frames theme is Black & White Minimalism, but my photo is much more white than black.

"White Chairs and Mondrian"
When I walked by these chairs in front of the painting by Piet Mondrian in the Israel Museum, I knew that I had found my Black Minimalism subject. 

Once while in New York's Museum of Modern Art I ended up listening to a gallery talk about Piet Mondrian, so I recognized the style of his painting right away. And I must admit that I was quite proud of myself for guessing correctly!

The perfect white minimalist props for the painting are these two chairs. They almost fade into the background, and you can't get more minimalist than that.

What do you think?
