Constructivism, De Stijl

4 Discovered artists
Constructivism arose at the beginning of the 20th century. The first artists of the period came from Russia and the later Soviet Union. Characteristic of Constructivism is the renunciation of the representation of natural motifs such as animals or humans. Similarly, there are no landscapes in the paintings of the painters of the style. Instead, geometric shapes such as lines or color areas are used as the means of expression. The lack of objectivity is therefore the common denominator of Constructivism. A well-known representative of the style is the Russian painter Kasimir Malewitsch, who lived from 1878 to 1935. Above all, his picture "Black Square" is one of the most important works of art. It exists in several variants and is nowadays exhibited at the Hermitage in Saint Petersburg. The work includes only a black rectangle surrounded by a white border.

The group of artists De Stijl, which was formed in the Netherlands in 1917, also represents a popular current of Constructivism. The artists also devoted themselves to a departure from the technique of the art of the past, but rather to an abstract form aesthetics. They also used only a few basic colors, such as red and blue. An important artist of the De Stijl artist association is Piet Mondrian. The Dutch painter created, among other things, the well-known picture "Broadway Boogie Woogie", which is located in the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
