Mondrian: The Art of Destruction

by: Carel Blotkamp
This book on Mondrian, one of the great pioneers of abstract art, analyzes the interrelation between his paintings and his theories on art and life as expressed in public writings and (largely unpublished) letters. Mondrian's art was not based on reasoning or calculation – on the contrary, intuition was central to his concept of the artistic process – but he always felt a strong urge to position his art in a wider cultural and philosophical context. Crucial to Mondrian's thought was the Theosophical notion of evolution, which required the destruction of the old to make room for the new, in life, in society and in art.

De Stijl

by: Paul Overy
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. De Stijl was international in its outlook: in contact with the Bauhaus and the Russian Constructivists, it helped create the ideology and formal language of modernism. 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.

The De Stijl Environment

by: Nancy J. Troy
The Dutch magazine De Stijl, published from 1917 to 1931, was the focus of a remarkable group of advanced artists and architects who sought to combine their individual talents in collaborative projects that reflected their social and aesthetic ideals.

The De Stijl Environment explores the group's approach to exterior and interior spaces and to furniture. It treats such themes as color, abstraction, and the corner, and describes the various collaborative efforts within the movement, in particular, the one that produced the De Stijl environment.

de Stijl

by: Hans L. C. Jaffe
The De Stijl group-so named after the journal which was its mouthpiece-produced one of the revolutionary modern artistic movements. Formed in Leiden in 1917, its first members were the painters Mondrian, Bart van der Leck, Vilmos Huszar, and Theo van Doesburg its founder and guiding spirit. Strongly influenced by the Cubists, the group was united in the total abandonment of naturalistic representation in favor of a purely abstract art, dominated by the use of straight lines, right angles, the primary colors, and black, gray, and white.
