In 1917, a group of Dutch artists organized and revered the laws of equilibrium and harmony applicable to art and to life in the abstract works they created.

Piet Mondrian

They called their collective De Stijl β€œThe Style.” The most notable artists include Piet Mondrian, Theo van Doesburg, and Vilmos HuszΓ‘r.

Mondrian was influenced by his interest in Analytical Cubism in Paris before 1914, however Mondrian felt it had fallen short of its goal.

Theo van Doesburg - Simultaneous Counter Composition

Mondrian believed Cubism had not developed toward pure abstraction, which he described as β€œThe expression of pure plastics” (which he later called Neoplasticism).

Theo van Doesburg - Composition in Gray

Mondrian eliminated all representational components in his quest for an art of clarity and order that would also express his religious and philosophical beliefs.

Mondrian reduced painting to its elements: straight lines, plane surfaces, rectangles & used the primary colors (red, yellow & blue) combined w/ neutrals (black, gray & white).

Van Doesburg shared Mondrian’s austere principles, launched the group’s periodical, De Stijl (1917–32), which expressed the theories of its members.

As a movement, De Stijl influenced painting, decorative arts (including furniture design), typography & architecture.

It was architecture that realized both De Stijl’s stylistic aims & its goal of close collaboration among the arts.

The Worker’s Housing Estate in Hoek van Holland (1924–27), designed by Oud, expresses the same clarity, austerity & order found in a Mondrian painting.
