Inhaltsangabe: The Dutch magazine "De Stijl," published from 1917 to 1931, was the focus of a remarkable group of advanced artists and architects who sought to combine their individual talents in collaborative projects that reflected their social and aesthetic ideals."The De Stijl Environment" explores the group's approach to exterior and interior spaces and to furniture. It treats such themes as color, abstraction, and the corner, and describes the various collaborative efforts within the movement, in particular, the one that produced the De Stijl environment. Troy traces its evolution from an architecturally defined space to one determined by coloristic design. Among the painters discussed are Piet Mondrian, Theo van Doesburg, Vilmos Huszar, and Bart van der Liek; the architects include Gerrit Rietveld, Rob van't Hoff, Jan Wils, J. J. P Oud, and Cornelius van Eesteren.Nancy J. Troy is Associate Professor of Art History, Northwestern University.
Rezension: "A brilliant analysis of De Stijl theory and practice that will add immeasurably to our understanding of one of the most significant movements in twentieth-century art. Nancy Troy's book will be eagerly read by everyone interested in the genesis of modern ideas about space and formal abstraction."- Helen Searing, Smith College
