Neoplasticism (De Stijl)[edit]

Neoplasticism, or De Stijl (Dutch for "The Style"), was a Dutch artistic movement founded in 1917. Proponents of De Stijl 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.Excerpted from De Stijl on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
