De Stijl, Dutch for "Style", also known as neoplasticism, was a Dutch artistic movement founded in 1917 in Amsterdam. The De Stijl consisted of artists and architects who advocated pure abstraction and universality by a reduction to the essentials of form and colour; they simplified visual compositions to the vertical and horizontal directions, and used only primary colors along with black and white.The nine essays in this volume with over 260 illustrations focus on a remarkable group of artists and architects who sought to integrate painting with architecture, sculpture and graphic design thus providing significant influence on contemporary visual arts between 1917 and 1928. The end result is a biographically vivid view of De Stijl, its practioners, and the lasting effects of their vision. Bookseller Inventory # 24270
