De Stijl

Founded in 1917 by Theo van Doesburg and Piet Mondrian, De Stijl (“The Style”) was a Netherlands-based art movement known for its dedication to geometric forms, primary colors, harmonious compositions, and unified philosophy across artistic disciplines, including painting, sculpture, architecture, and design. Striving towards a universal aesthetic, De Stijl artists pushed forward new forms of abstraction governed by straight lines and stripped of any traces of the artist’s hand. “Curves are too emotional,” Mondrian explained. The major creative influence in the group, Mondrian also leads the auction market for De Stijl: The Dutch master’s painting Composition No. III, with Red, Blue, Yellow, and Black (1929) sold for $50 million at a Christie’s auction in 2015.
