Around 1905-1910 pointillism as practiced by Jan Sluyters, Piet Mondrian and Leo Gestel was flourishing. Between 1911 and 1914 all the latest art movements arrived in the Netherlands one after another including cubism, futurism and expressionism. After WWI, De Stijl (the style)was led by Theo van Doesburg and Piet Mondrian and promoted a pure art, with no subject matter but with vertical and horizontal elements, and the use of primary colors and noncolors.

The Design Academy was established in 1947.
