TVD Simultaneous Counter-Composition based on Simultaneous Counter Composition by Theo van Doesburg
Dimensions: 13.5cm x 13.5cm, weight 200g
Theo van Doesburg painted Simultaneous Counter-Composition in 1930 as one of a series of oil on canvas paintings that use squares and simple colours to reduce painting to it basic components, exemplifying the goal of the De Stijl movement.
In TVD Simultaneous Counter-Composition, the lines, colours, and shapes have a degree of intensity that gives the square an eye-catching geometric effect, the yellow and blue squares lie parallel to one another while the red square lies slightly offset. All squares are connected through the use of right angle which creates a clear square over a majority of the piece.
TVD Simultaneous Counter-Composition successfully recreates van Doesburg’s piece from hand-cut stained glass, joined with lead solder and retained within a zinc frame. A discreet piece of art.
