H. L. C. Jaffe recounts the history of this abstract movement- explains its artistic goals and practice- delineates its utopian ideology- and describes the special qualities of De Stijl painting, sculpture, architecture, and design.Jaffe charts the evolution of the movement from its beginning in 1917 with the founding of the journal De Stijl.

He locates the philosophical origins of the artistic program, which put aside representation of nature and confined itself to pure forms of expression: vertical and horizontal lines and the primary colors--yellow, blue, red--against white, black, and gray. He describes the roles of Ban Doesburg, De Stijls driving force, and Mondrian, its leading exponent- the application of its principles to design and architecture- and the involvement of sculptors Arp and Brancusi. He places De Stijl in relation to other abstract arts and demonstrates its wide range of influence.

Throughout Jaffe quotes extensively from the writings of the De Stijl group, allowing the artists themselves to describe their aims and methods- a complete forty-page pamphlet by Mondrian, Art and Life (1931) is appended.
