Neoplasticism was the central philosophy of De Stijl, a Dutch artistic movement led by Theo van Doesburg and including Piet Mondrian. In one of the many reactions to Cubism in the 1920s, De Stijl and the Neoplasticists felt that Cubism had retarded its own natural result- a completely non-representational abstraction. The use of pared down, primary colors and right angles would eliminate any distractions from the ultimate reality, rendering a plastic expression. This faith in color was unprecedented. Mondrian went on to develop a set of guidelines governing the creation of his paintings, including the balance of opposites, use of blue, yellow, and red on structures of black and white, and shapes made solely from right angles. The result was a neutralization of all depth, distraction from perceived references to the natural world. Despite the elimination of illusionist characteristics, Mondrian felt his paintings reflected the world around him. By the mid 1920s, philosophical disagreements between members of De Stijl had caused the group to weaken, and it would finally dissolve in 1931 following the death of Theo van Doesburg. Piet Mondrian remained true to the principles of Neoplasticism, and his works are among the most recognizable of the movement.

This is the best product for cleaning your technical pens. I also use it for cleaning my Waterman Fountain pens, and it works great!
- Professor in Somerset, NJ
I absolutely love these markers. The colors are beautiful. They are easy to use as well. These are a good price too.
- ShellyOtt in Orlando, FL
Not the world's greatest, but nice, especially given the price. More than adequate for practice pieces, and students. I pay more per tube for the professional quality paints I use now, than for this entire 18-piece collection, so if you need paints for practice, go for it! Not especially great for making custom colors- mixes tend to get muddy. Stays wet in tubes for years!
