Quick Reference


Under the editorship of Theo van der Wijdeveld, in its early years this Dutch magazine was an important propagandist for the designer‐architects of the Amsterdam School, particularly Michel De Klerk, to whom it dedicated three issues as a memorial following his death in 1923. However, it was not until the early 1920s that the periodical assumed any real international significance through its links with Erich Mendelssohn and Berlin Expressionism, later followed by an issue on Eileen Gray (1924) and a double‐issue devoted to the work of Frank Lloyd Wright in 1925. The layout of the magazine underwent a number of changes, reflecting a move away from the more decorative aesthetic ideas of the Amsterdam School towards the more rectilinear and austere qualities of the international phase of De Stijl in its later years before folding in 1931.
