De Stijl Dutch for “The Style” (also known as Neoplasticism) Sought to express a new utopian ideal of spiritual harmony and order. They advocated pure abstraction and universality by a reduction to the essentials of form and colour — they simplified visual compositions to the vertical and horizontal directions, and used only primary colors along with black and white. Goal: to create a precise, mechanical order lacking in the natural world. Piet Mondrian, Composition With Yellow, Blue and Red,
