Summary: Four of the most influential and provocative art historians of our time come together to provide a comprehensive history of art in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Adopting a year-by-year approach, they present more than one hundred (c.3, 000 words) essays, each focusing on a crucial event such as the creation of a seminal work, the publication of an artistic manifesto, or the opening of a major exhibition to tell the story of the period from 1900 to the present. All the key turning points and breakthroughs of modernism and postmodernism are explored in depth, as are the frequent and sustained antimodernist reactions that proposed alternative visions of art and the world. Two roundtable discussions one at mid-century, the other at the close of the book consider some of the questions raised by the preceding decades and look ahead to the art of the future. Fine paperback copy. Particularly and surprisingly well-preserved; tight, bright, clean and especially sharp-cornered. Literally as new.
