De Stijl

De Stijl or in English the style is the art of movement around the 1920's. This concept is developed along the first world war protracted. De Stijl art community and then trying to meet the desires of the world community regarding the new system of harmony in art.

This concept is embodied in utopian thinking. They realize the abstraction and universality by reducing interference and richness of color as possible. Visual composition are reduced to only the areas and lines of horizontal and vertical directions, using primary colors like red, blue, and yellow in addition to help black and white colors.

In most works of art, vertical and horizontal lines do not directly intersect, but each passing one another. This can be seen from the painting Mondrian, Rietveld Schröder House, and Red and blue chair.

Influence and development

The concept of de Stijl philosophy influenced many mathematicians M. H. J. Schoenmaekers. Piet Mondrian, and then publish their artistic manifestations of Neo-Plasticism in 1920, although the term is actually already used by him in 1917 in the Netherlands with the phrase Nieuwe Beelding. Painter Theo van Doesburg and De Stijl publish articles from 1917 to 1928, spreading the theories of this group. De Stijl artists including George Vantongerloo sculptor, and architect JJP Oud and Gerrit Rietveld.

Basically the flow of de Stijl only move in the world of painting. Because after all the concept of de Stijl is an ideal abstraction of color composition in the form of two-dimensional, although the later also produces the impression of space. Utilization is very much in the interior and arsitekrur. but as written by Piet Mondrian De Stijl that remains an ideal concept in two dimensions. Although Theo van Doesburg worked hard to fight pengaplikasiannya in the world of architecture, de Stijl still only be taken into consideration in the processing of color fields, not the architecture itself.

de Stijl faded as divisions among the Theo van Doesburg and Piet Mondrian applied to theoretical. Until finally the magazine de Stijl was the last time came to commemorate the death of Theo van Doesburg.
