De Stijl (in English generally pronounced /də staɪl/ (IPA) after style; from the Dutch for "the style" – Dutch pronunciation: IPA /də stɛɪl/), also known as neoplasticism, was a Dutch artistic movement, founded in 1917. In a narrower sense, the term De Stijl is used to refer to a body of work created by a group of Dutch artists, from 1917 to 1931.[1][2] De Stijl is also the name of a journal which was published by the painter and critic Theo van Doesburg, propagating the group's theories. Next to Van Doesburg, the group's principal members were the painters Piet Mondrian and Bart van der Leck, and the architects Gerrit Rietveld and J.J.P. Oud. The artistic philosophy that formed a basis for the group's work is known as neoplasticism — the new plastic art (or Nieuwe Beelding in Dutch).

Principles and influences

The name De Stijl is supposedly derived from Gottfried Semper's Der Stil in den technischen und tektonischen Künsten oder Praktische Ästhetik (1861-3) which Curl[2] suggests was mistakenly believed to advocate Materialism and Functionalism. In general, De Stijl proposed ultimate simplicity and abstraction, both in architecture and painting, by using only straight (horizontal and vertical) lines and rectangular forms. Their formal vocabulary was limited furthermore to the primary colours red, yellow and blue and the three primary values Black, white and grey. The works avoided symmetry and attained aesthetic balance by the use of opposition. Gottfried Semper Gottfried Semper (1803-1879) was a German architect, art critic, and professor of architecture, who designed and built the Semper Oper in Dresden between 1838 and 1841. ... In philosophy, materialism is that form of physicalism which holds that the only thing that can truly be said to exist is matter; that fundamentally, all things are composed of material and all phenomena are the result of material interactions; that matter is the only substance. ... Functionalism is a term with several senses: For functionalism in sociology, see Functionalism (sociology). ...

In many of the group's three-dimensional works, vertical and horizontal lines are positioned in layers or planes that do not intersect, thereby allowing each element to exist independently and unobstructed by other elements. This feature can be found in the Rietveld Schröder House and the Red and blue chair. The Rietveld Schröder House was built in 1924 by Dutch architect Gerrit Rietveld for Mrs. ...

De Stijl movement was influenced by Cubist painting, as well as by the mysticism and the ideas about 'ideal' geometric forms (such as 'the perfect straight line') in the neoplatonic philosophy of the mathematician M. H. J. Schoenmaekers. The works of De Stijl would influence the Bauhaus style and the international style of architecture, as well as clothing and interior design.

In music, De Stijl was only an influence on the work of the composer Jakob van Domselaer, a close friend of Mondrian. Between 1913 and 1916 he composed his Proeven van Stijlkunst ('Experiments in Artistic Style'), inspired mainly by Mondrian's painting. This minimalistic and, at the time, revolutionary music defined 'horizontal' and 'vertical' musical elements, and aimed at balancing those two principles. Van Domselaer was relatively unknown in his lifetime, and did not play a significant role within De Stijl group. // Music is an art form consisting of sound and silence expressed through time. ...

Early history

From the flurry of new art movements that followed the Impressionists' revolutionary new perception of painting, Cubism arose in the early twentieth century as an important and influential new direction. In the Netherlands, too, there was interest in this 'new art'.

However, because the Netherlands remained neutral in World War I, Dutch artists were not able to leave the country after 1914, and were thus effectively isolated from the international art world, and in particular from Paris, which was its centre at that time. “The Great War ” redirects here. ...

During that period, the painter Theo van Doesburg started looking for other artists to set up a journal and start an art movement. Van Doesburg was also a writer, poet and critic, who had been more successful writing about art than working as an independent artist. Quite adept at making new contacts, due to his flamboyant personality and outgoing nature, he had many useful connections in the art world.

Around 1915, Van Doesburg started meeting the artists that would eventually become the founders of the journal. He first met Piet Mondrian at an exhibition in the Amsterdam Stedelijk Museum. Mondrian, who had moved to Paris in 1912 (and there changed his name from "Mondriaan"), had been visiting Holland when war broke out. He could not return to Paris, and was staying in the artists community of Laren, where he met Bart van der Leck, and regularly saw M. H. J. Schoenmaekers. In 1915, Schoenmaekers published Het nieuwe wereldbeeld ('The New Image of the World'), followed in 1916 by Beginselen der beeldende wiskunde ('Principles of Plastic Mathematics'). These two publications would greatly influence Mondrian and other members of De Stijl.

Van Doesburg also knew J.J.P. Oud and the Hungarian artist Vilmos Huszàr. In 1917, the cooperation of these artists, together with the poet Anthony Kok, resulted in the founding of De Stijl. The young architect Gerrit Rietveld joined the group in 1918. Jacobus Johannes Pieter Oud (February 9, 1890 - April 5, 1963) was a Dutch architect. ...

During those first few years, the group was still relatively homogeneous, although Van der Leck left in 1918 due to artistic differences of opinion. 'Manifestos' were being published, signed by all members. The social and economic circumstances of the time formed an important source of inspiration for their theories. Their ideas about architecture were heavily influenced by Berlage and Frank Lloyd Wright. A manifesto is a public declaration of principles and intentions, often political in nature. ...

The name Nieuwe Beelding was a term first coined in 1917 by Mondrian, who wrote a series of twelve articles called De Nieuwe Beelding in de schilderkunst ('Neo-Plasticism in Painting'), that were published in the journal De Stijl. In 1920 he published a book titled Le Neo-Plasticisme. 1920 (MCMXX) was a leap year starting on Thursday. ...

Around 1921, the group's character started to change. From the time of Van Doesburg's association with Bauhaus, other influences started playing a role. These influences were mainly Malevich and Russian Constructivism, to which not all members agreed. In 1923 Mondrian and Van Doesburg had a falling-out.[citation needed] In addition, De Stijl group acquired many new 'members'. Dadaist influences, such as I.K.Bonset's poetry and Aldo Camini's 'anti-philosophy' generated controversy as well. Only after Van Doesburg's death it was revealed that Bonset and Camini were two of his pseudonyms.

Because of Van Doesburg's pivotal role within De Stijl, the group did not survive. Individual members remained in contact, but De Stijl could not exist without a strong central character. Thus it may be wrong to think of De Stijl as a close-knit group of artists. The members knew each other, but most communication took place by letter. For example, Mondrian and Rietveld never met in person. Vintage German letter balance for home use Look up letter in Wiktionary, the free dictionary. ...


Many, though not all, artists did stay true to the movement's basic ideas, even after 1931. Rietveld, for instance, continued designing furniture according to De Stijl principles, while Mondrian continued working in the style he had initiated around 1920. Van der Leck, on the other hand, went back to figurative compositions after his departure from the group.


Influence on architecture

The Rietveld Schröder House. The only building realised completely according to the principles of De Stijl

The De Stijl influence on architecture remained considerable, long after 1931. Mies van der Rohe was among the most important proponents of its ideas. Between 1923 and 1924, Rietveld designed the Rietveld Schröder House, the only building to have been created completely according to De Stijl principles. Examples of Stijl-influenced works by J.J.P.

Present day

De Stijl is still considered to be one of the most important Dutch contributions to art. Ironically, while its proponents' aim was to create an 'international' style, De Stijl is often seen as typically Dutch.


Works of De Stijl members are scattered all over the world, but De Stijl-themed exhibitions are organised regularly. Museums with large De Stijl collections include the Gemeentemuseum at The Hague, which owns the world's most extensive (although not exclusively De Stijl-related) Mondrian collection, and the Amsterdam Stedelijk Museum, where many works by Rietveld and Van Doesburg are on display.
