I'm not the best in explaining things but I'm going to try!
De Stijl, also called Neoplasticism is a Dutch artistic movement founded in 1917.
De Stijl is dutch for The Style. ''De Stijl'' also used to be a magazine containing artworks of Neoplasticism.
Neo means new and plast means the shape of something.
De Stijl expresses a new utopian idea of an art style with spiritual harmony and order. De Stijl is a style with pure abstraction. De Stijl goes back to the essence of art. That means a reduction of shape and colour.
Rules for colours: You can only use red, yellow, blue, grey, white and black.
Rules for shapes: You can only use geometric shapes with straight lines, like rectangles and squares.
These things are the base of everything. So with this appreance you'll create a natural image.
I hope that was a good explaination, if you think you know a better description for this blog, please submit it as a text post.
Also, if I didn't use correct grammar please correct me and I'll edit this. I'm a Dutch guy myself so sorry if I make a mistake here and there. I try not to.
I post only once a day. Because as lovely as it is, there are not much artworks who belong to De Stijl.
