De Stijl Reduce Form. Abstract! Depersonalize art! Reconceived the environment! Explore new plasticity! This is exactly what painter and architect; Theo van Doesburg did when he founded an art and design movement called De Stjil in 1917. De Stjil, meaning ‘style’, depersonalized art, the object and architecture. Doesburg published a journal called DeStjil presenting the movement’s new objective aesthetics and theories between1917 and 1932. Composition in De Stjil was accomplished through proportional relationships between colored and uncolored forms and closed and open forms. The painter Piet Mondrian created compositions of straight lines framing red, blue and yellow primary colors; designer and architect Van Doesburg transferred abstract and anonymous principles of De Still paintings into interior spaces of houses and to entire city plans. DeStjil infuenced teachings at the Bauhaus in Germany in the 1920’s. Reduce Form. Abstract!
