Theo van Doesburg Paintings

Theo van Doesburg (August 30, 1883 – March 7, 1931), born as Christian Emil Marie Kupper, was a Dutch artist who was skilled in a variety of subjects, including painting, architecture, poetry, and typography. He changed his name in honor of his step father, whom he considered to be his true father in all the ways that matter. He was the founder and editor of the De Stijl journal, which supported the De Stijl art movement and brought together those who identified with this new movement. The artist, Piet Mondrian, and the architects J. J. P. Oud and Jan Wils were among those who supported Doesburg’s journal and were actively involved with it.
