De Stijl, or neoplasticism, was an art movement that started in the 1920s. It refers to the new plastic art (or Nieuwe Beelding in Dutch). Proponents of de Stijl aimed to express a new utopian ideal of spiritual harmony and order. They proposed the idea that pure abstraction and universality by a reduction to the essentials of form and colour was a valid artistic form, and they simplified visual compositions to vertical and the horizontal using only primary colours like red, blue and yellow and black and white. In some of the work that it representative of the neoplasticism movement the vertical and the horizontal lines slide past each other without intersecting, such as in Mondrian's painting of the Rietveld Schröder House and the Red and blue chair.
