De Stijl

Theo van Doesburg founded the Dutch organization de Stijl in 1917, first as a journal. Holland had not felt the effects of modernism as other northern European countries had, and therefore the first strains of pure Dutch abstraction were represented by the work of members of the group. A journal was published roughly every month from 1917 to 1928, and welcomed the ideas of all contemporary European art movements. The journal proselytized a rejection of tradition, and artists began to stress simplification of form and composition. The artists involved in the movement were sculptor Georges Vantongerloo, painter Vilmos Huszár and architect and designer Gerrit Rietveld. Most notable, however, was the participation of Piet Mondrian. De Stijl artists shared an idea about the role of art in society. Designers, architects and artists worked to unify every aspect of visual life in such a way as to imbue contemporary lifestyles with a Utopian-like vision of intellectual harmony. A narrow palette of primary colors, neutrals and simple lines, cubes and rectangles typify the work of de Stijl artists.

I purchased the # 6, 8 and 10 round brushes. If you are looking for a round brush with a point as pictured in the MisterArt brush shape chart these brushes do not have a pointed tip. The quality and price make these brushes a good value.

I have received your canvas panels before and I like them very much.

I agree with Debbie P. This paint looks terrible on glass. Streaks, different colors. I'm attempting to paint a State Seal on stained glass to make a badge for my son and at the rate it's going it will be 2 years before it's painted good enough to use. Everything she said about the brush stroked and overlapping areas is true for me. Not a happy camper with this product.
