Synopses & Reviews
This is the spanking-new Art Now, in which you'll find the most recent work and updated biographical information for our revised selection of today's 150 most influential artists. Art Now also includes a completely new section a sort of 'service guide' produced in collaboration with The Art Newspaper which lists museums, restaurants, and hotels we recommend you check out while you're cruising the global art scene, and even gives the scoop on how much one can expect to pay for a Damien Hirst or a Sharon Lockhart and whom to contact if you decide to buy. We also let you know useful details like how many prints Wolfgang Tillmans made for a certain edition and what sorts of sums big players like Koons, Sherman, and Struth bring in at auction. Think of it as an indispensable reference book, travel guide, and art market directory all rolled into one.
Packed into a pocket-sized book is a concise selection of art from the last two decades of the 20th century, culled from the Taschen title "Art at the Turn of the Millennium." Two pages, with illustrations and biographical/bibliographical information, are devoted to each artist.
