Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This book is a world survey of the visual arts from the 1960s to the present, a period of extraordinary richness, and also of controversy and confusion. With a critical eye and a historian’s insight into wider trends, Edward Lucie-Smith provides an authoritative guide to this unstable world. Clear, accurate and informative, he charts the progress of contemporary developments and traces their sources and interrelationships.

Since its first publication in 1995, Art Today has become recognised as an indispensable introduction to contemporary art. It is now reissued as a paperback, at a price that will make it affordable to students and all who seek orientation in this exciting but complex field.

Review:

"Clearly written and with copious illustrations, the book offers brief biographies of all artists mentioned, a chronology, and bibliography. This essential guide to contemporary art is highly recommended." Library Journal

Synopsis:
