26 Feb-29 May. The Dutch artist Theo van Doesburg (1883-1931) is known for his avant-garde paintings, writings, poetry and architecture but is best remembered as the founder and leader of De Stijl.
Founded in the Netherlands in 1912 and lasting until 1931, De Stijl combined both an aesthetic and social vision and its main exponents alongside van Doesburg were Piet Mondrian and Gerrit Rietveld. De Stijl’s strong architectural elements allowed the movement to readily influence all aspects of design, from city planning to furniture and interiors.
This exhibition presents van Doesburg’s works and his contribution to a radical movement whose visual language redefined modern art.
