Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

- A complement to the landmark Art Book, this volume is an accessible guide to the art of the 20th century - Showcases 500 artists in alphabetical order, placing early stars like Monet, Picasso and Dalf alongside the most innovative contemporary artists - Documents the myriad new media utilized by artists - from oil and collage to sculpture and readymades to installation and video - Each artist is represented by a full-page colour plate and a biographical text that both explains the image and introduces its creator - Easy to use: cross-references make connections between artists, while a glossary defines terms and artistic movements, and an international directory of museums and galleries helps readers to encounter the art face to face - Mini and midi formats are also available, which have all of the visual impact and educational value of the original in a more lightweight, portable format
