Modern Art: Impressionism to Post-Modernism Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A superbly illustrated overview of the major movements in the visual arts from Impressionism to Post-Modernism.

Modern Art is an authoritative introduction to every important development in the visual arts from the late nineteenth century to the 1980s. Eight critical essays by noted art historians shed light on topics from Impressionism to Dada, Art Nouveau to Pop Art. The essays are ordered chronologically, and each thoroughly examines the historical context—political, social, and technological —that shaped the movement under discussion.

The text is accompanied by more than 400 color illustrations of the work of some of the most celebrated figures in art history, comprising an invigorating multiplicity of visual styles. Anyone seeking a gallery of the masterpieces of twentieth-century art, together with an informed survey of the period, will find no better single volume. 400+ color illustrations.
