Bart van der Leck Packaging Box Metz & Co Holland, 1935



Very nice large storage box designed by Bart van der Leck for Metz & Co in 1935. These boxes were designed as present/packaging boxes for the Metz & Co shop in Amsterdam and Den Haag and were used from 1935-1952. This is for a very nice large example in very good original condition. Cardboard box with Bart van der Leck print on it. Bart Anthony van der Leck (Utrecht, 1876 - Blaricum, 1958) was a Dutch designer and artist. Van der Leck is best known as one of the founders of De Stijl together with Piet Mondrian and Theo van Doesburg. Van der Leck, however, left the movement early on - in 1918 - because he did not agree to all principles, including with regard to the use of diagonals and the shape and placement of color patches in the total surface of the painting. In addition, there were problems between Van der Leck and Van Doesburg especially at the organizational level. Van der Leck decided to break off contact with Style ensuing disagreements.
