Summary:
Dutch artist Theo van Doesburg (1883-1931) is perhaps best known as a prime mover in De Stijl, the Dutch artistic movement that demanded an extreme simplicity and abstraction in both architecture and painting. Here, the true extent of his influence is explored, demonstrating that it reached far beyond Holland.
