De Stijl ("The Style") was the name given to the work of the architects, designers and artists associated with the magazine of the same title edited by Theo van Doesburg and founded in Holland in 1917.

This survey illuminates the works of Mondrian and the architecture and designs of Oud, Wils, Huszar and Rietveld, all of whom aimed to create an objective art concerned with universal values, expressed in primary geometric forms and pure colors. 157 illus., 17 in color.

From the Back Cover:

De Stijl ('The Style') was the name given to the work of the architects, designers and artists associated with the magazine of the same name edited by Theo van Doesburg and founded in Holland in 1917. De Stijl was international in its outlook: in contact with the Bauhaus and the Russian Constructivists, it helped to create the ideology and formal language of modernism. Mondrian is De Stijl's best known artist, while Oud, Wils, Huszar and Rietveld were its major architects and designers. Their aim was an objective art concerned with universal values, expressed in primary geometric forms and pure colours. Now De Stijl is reassessed by Paul Overy in the light of Post-modernist debates and recently available documentary material.

About the Author:

Paul Overy was educated at King's College, Cambridge. He lectures on the history of art, architecture and design at London University, the London Institute and Middlesex Polytechnic and as been an art critic for The Times, The Financial Times and The Listener. He is the author of Kandinsky: The Language of the Eye (1969) and an earlier volume on De Stijl and is co-author of The Rietveld Schroder House (1988).
