Mondrian & De Stijl
Holland and De Stijl
De Stijl was founded in 1917 and is the most famous Dutch art movement. With Theo van Doesburg, Piet Mondrian, Bart van der Leck, and Gerrit Rietveld as its foremost members, De Stijl artists and architects aimed to realize a new and better world. They advocated abstraction as a universal language by reducing form and color to their essence. Their compositions of lines and planes in black, white, red, yellow and blue are celebrated around the world. Even today, they inspire artists, architects, and designers.
