La Mouvement emphasized simplicity and abstraction in both its visual art and its architecture. The group’s primary influence was Piet Mondrian, who developed a style of painting based on horizontal and vertical lines and primary colors.
The movement was short-lived, lasting only from 1917 to 1931. However, its influence was far-reaching, particularly in the fields of architecture and design. De Stijl principles can be seen in the work of many later artists and architects, including Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe, and Frank Lloyd Wright.
