Piet Mondrian (1872-1944) , the Dutch artist, is the most renowned artist to propagate the art form of De Stijl, commonly known as Neo-Plasticism, an artistic movement which proposed ultimate simplicity and abstraction, both in architecture and painting, by using only straight horizontal and vertical lines and rectangular forms. Their formal vocabulary was limited mostly to the primary colours, red, yellow, and blue, and to a grid of black vertical and horizontal lines on a white ground. The works avoided symmetry and attained aesthetic balance by the use of opposition. See below how influential its tenets and visuals have been and still are even today
