Historical Context of Netherlands
In the post-Impressionist era, the dutch Vincent Van Gogh is considered among one of the most leading innovators, and is of course regarded as one of the most remarkable painters of all time, regardless of the era. In the twentieth century, some of the earliest examples of abstraction in the Netherlands were emerged under the aegis of the seminal de Stijl movement, led by Piet Mondrian and Theo van Doesberg. Gerrit Rietveld was an influential architect and designer whose work is closely related to the ideas of De Stijl.
