De Stijl : Art, Architecture, Design Paperback
by Paul Overy
Part of the World of Art S. series
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. 157 illus., 17 in color.
