Paul Klee is known for his off-beat sense of humor and the deceptively child-like nature of his art. He once wrote, "I want to be as though newborn, to be almost primitive." Working more and more child-like with paint, he eventually moved into a kind of painting that was solely about color, shape and texture.

Piet Mondrian Composition in Brown and Gray 1913-14
De Stijl - “The Style” in Dutch: An art movement that began in 1917 advocating pure abstraction and simplicity -- forms reduced to the rectangle and other geometric shapes, and color to the primary colors, along with black and white. Piet Mondrian was the group's leading figure. He maintained that art should not concern itself with reproducing images of real objects, but should express only the universal absolutes that underlie reality.
Piet Mondrian Composition with Gray and Light Brown 1918
Piet Mondrian Composition A: Black, Red, Gray, Yellow, and Blue 1920
Mondrian’s mature technique was based on intuition but carried through with meticulous care. The composition was first drafted with charcoal on paper or canvas. Painted pieces of paper and strips of tape pinned and tacked to the canvas in a complex collage were used until the final composition was achieved. They were then laboriously removed and replaced with non-textural oil paint to complete the work.
