November 1971
New Yorker;11/20/1971, Vol. 47 Issue 40, p201
The article focuses on the art works of Piet Mondrian. It mentions that his neo-plastic abstractions are affirmations not of himself but a carefully worked-out program in relation with art and society. Neo-Plasticism is aimed in the representation of nothing that is determined individually. Theo van Doesburg stated that the mind should completely conceive the work of art before its execution.
