An essential companion to 20th- and 21st-century art, the book features an illustrated A-to-Z guide of more than 100 artists, with concise and accessible entries and explanations of key terms in art history and museology.

Synopsis:

A concise and accessible guide, the handbookand#8217;s publication coincides with the new chronological re-hanging of the Tate Collection.
