Theo van Doesburg Stained Glass Windows

In addition to painting, Dutch artist Theo van Doesburg (1883-1931) co-founder and "ambassador" to the De Stijl movement, designed many stained glass works during his career. His neoplastic art, with its black bordered color fields, were perfectly suited for the stained glass medium.
