Mondrian - Broadway Boogie Woogie

Mondrian went to New York because of WWII and it must have been striking to get in touch with boggie-woggie, architecture, Broadway lights and the traffic of the city. It was suggested that the yellow was inspired by New York cabs. He only used verticals and horizontals lines as he always used to . Oh my! US citizens are familiar with this work. It's at MoMA. I cannot help feeling something related to the London Underground at the post below which last version was designed in 1960. I guess it's just me. I like both cities. Perhaps that's it.
