The Stijl 1 

1922

De Stijl 1 with the presence of the three primary colours blue, red and yellow and of the non-colours black, grey and white, as well as the depiction of variations of one and the same geometrical shape, the title itself, stands for a programme in Peter Keler’s work. 

The De Stijl artists associated with Theo van Doesburg – who was closely connected with the Bauhaus in Weimar – followed Wassily Kandinsky’s colour theories but did not assign a geometric figure to each of the primary colours.

Kandinsky 

developed his theory at the Bauhaus intuitively and extended it through discussions with the students; he came to the 

conclusion that

blue = circle, red = square, and yellow = triangle.

Peter Keler's painting was most probably created during a De-Stijl-Course led by Theo van Doesburg in 1922 at the Bauhaus 

in Weimar.
