ABSTRACT ART: INSPIRING ART BY THEO VAN DOESBURG

Good Morning! I am inspired by this abstract art painting from Theo van Doesburg, seen at We Love Paintings. This art gallery is offering a large amount of interesting art. Love the use of the planes in this painting as well as the fresh color use. Take a look at the link below. I am sure you will be surprised what this gallery is offering, from popular, classical, modern art to maritime, Asian and religious art. They are also offering high quality hand-painted oil painting reproductions of masterpieces.
