2 The de stijl movement encompassed a new addition in modern art - architecture. This art movement used their artistic talent by designing homes, buildings, and furniture. Unlike most architects during the time, the De Stijl movement signified a new trend, its own name meaning "The Style”.The De Stijl movement was originally founded in 1917 by an aspiring group of young Dutch architects.De Stijl translates into English as 'The Style'. There were three periods of De Stijl: The Immature period which lasted from 1916 to 1921, the mature period which lasted from 1921 to 1925 and the deterioration period which lasted from 1925 to
3 Artists of the De Stijl movement saw art as a collective approach, and as a language that went beyond culture, geography and politics.The artwork created by the De Stijl movement artists gave off a depersonalized, anonymous feel. It was felt that the artist’s personality should take a back seat in the artwork.The key to creating art within the movement’s views was to follow the theory of scaling down formal components of art – using only primary colors and straight lines.A painting was created from the features on the surface and many De Stijl paintings convey elements of nature – expressed abstractly.Mondrian followed the principles of new-plasticism whereas Van Doesburg attempted to broaden the movement’s research projects in architechture – he wanted to recreate the entire living space within a home.De Stijl paintings usually represented parts of larger spaces like interiors spaces within houses. De Stijl forms were often geometric, and made up of primary colors. The main views of the De Stijl movement greatly influenced the Bauhaus movement in Germany in the 1920’s.
4 The architecture of the De Stijl artists was made up of geometric shapes including sphere shaped windows and triangular chairs. Both their art and architecture was considered very radical and even to nowadays standard would seem radical. However the architecture that they produced was incredibly successful. Colour wise, the De Stijl artists used primary and bold colours which creates a very striking look and styleDuring the Immature period the artists displayed mainly paintings and sculpture. They formed together to create the De Stijl magazine.
