Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This little volume contains nearly 120 entries which clearly explain the who, what, where, and when of American and European art since 1945. Fifty-six black-and-white illustrations enliven the text, and 28 color plates are interwoven with an invaluable timeline of world and art world events from 1945 to 1996. A one-page ArtChart provides a handy overview of the major art movements during the same period.
