One hundred years after De Stijl, elements of its principles can be found in the work of each one of these artists. Taking it further and adding their own set of rules, they are going forward. They have found liberty in altering form, colour and material to a point of calm, balance and rhythm completely and deliberately in their own way.

This exhibition features murals created at the invitation of Museum De Lakenhal by twenty leading artists of varying national origin. The wall paintings all build on the ideas of Theo van Doesburg, who launched his De Stijl magazine in Leiden exactly a century ago. The exhibition is the work of guest curators Iemke van Dijk and Guido Winkler.

One hundred years after the birth of the De Stijl movement, Museum De Lakenhal is taking stock of what has been achieved. The murals are being exhibited in the town’s Pieterskerkhof area, while a scale model of the Maison d’Artiste can be seen on Het Gerecht. The Maison d’Artiste was designed by Theo van Doesburg and Cornelis van Eesteren in Paris in 1923.
