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.

Latest Product Reviews

I wrote a review before seeing a video, which demonstrated how to open the luminaries so they could stand. Now I love them! I just wish the instructions had been clearer. You have to spread the bottom seam so the plastic piece inside can push the sides apart. I love that the candles light up when they touch the water, and turn off when removed from the water.

Miater Art has good quality items with prompt delivery service. However, when inventory is low or sold out, products should be re-stocked quickly so they are available for customers to order immediately. The wait can be excessive for out of stock and back ordered items.
