Represented as one of the major "modern movements" since the first attempts to construct histories of early twentieth-century art, architecture and design in the 1920s. De Stijl was not a homogeneous "group" or an "ism" like Cubism, Futurism, or Surrealism; nor was it an art and design school like the Bauhaus. Rather, it was a collective project of enterprise, organized and promoted by the Dutch painter, designer, writer and propagandist Theo van Doesburg (1883-1031), between 1917 and 1928. The main elements of continuity in it were the De Stijl magazine, edited by Van Doesburg, and his own commitment as a proselytizer and entrepreneur.
