For those who aren’t art history majors, De Stijl was an artistic movement from in and around the 1920s. You may not know it by name, but you’d probably recognize some of the art. Most notably Piet Mondrian’s Composition series, a white background with thick black lines filled in with red, blue and yellow. The movement was wide reaching and affected not only artists, but architects, fashion designers, and even a musician. The key elements of the movement were horizontal and vertical black lines, rectangular forms, and only incorporated red, blue, and yellow for colors, as well as black, white, and grey.
