These are examined in depth together with chapters which concern the broader context of the past six decades. The book attempts a balanced perspective on art in Europe and America by the inclusion of black, Hispanic and women artists, and presents arguments to explain the reasons why great artists from these groups have previously been marginalized. Artists examined in detail include Calder, Hofmann, Gorky, Motherwell, de Kooning, Pollock, Newman, Rothko, David Smith, Dubuffet, Giacometti, Bacon, Rauschenberg et al. The book is illustrated with numerous coloured and black and white illustrations, and is provided with a concise bibliography. Jonathan Fineberg is Professor of Art History at the University of Illinois, and has taught at Harvard, Yale and Columbia universities. He won the Pulitzer Fellowship in Critical Writing in 1969, and his recent books include "The Innocent Eye: Children's Art and the Modern Artist"Read Less

I have not read the book cover to cover but so far I enjoy the style and approach. The book is organized according to artist and chronicles those artists who have a particular impact or niche in the art world. The book attempts to capture the zeitgeist moment of artwork and the development of the post-modern thought process and aesthetic.
