“The artist’s studio will be like a glass-bell or a hollow crystal. The painter himself must be white, which is to say, without tragedy or sorrow. The pallet must be of glass; the brush must be square and hard, dust-free and as immaculate as a surgical instrument.”
Theo van Doesburg
Theo van Doesburg‘s early work is in line with the Amsterdam Impressionists and influenced by Vincent van Gogh. However, after reading Wassily Kandinsky’s Rückblicke, he became strongly interested in the more spiritual level in painting that originates from the mind rather than from everyday life, and in abstraction as its logical expression.
He co-founded De Stijl with Piet Mondrian and was the leader of the movement. In 1922, he moved to Weimar to spread the influence of the movement through Walter Gropius and the Bauhaus School. During his career, Van Doesburg collaborated with Sophie Taeuber-Arp and Hans Arp, El Lissitzky and Kurt Schwitters and kept a link with the Dada movement.
