Garman creates a model for the search for the ideal in modern art. He examines the work and ideas of artists Robert Delaunay, Wassily Kandinsky, Frantisek Kupka, Kasimir Malevich, and Piet Mondrian as examples of artist-prophets who achieved the ideal in painting and who transcended the merely physical in art. Without mentioning the "Transcendental Painting Group," of which Garman has long been a member, he establishes their position on art and links it to the ideals of these past modernists.
