This engrossing volume takes us on a fascinating visual journey through the most groundbreaking and avant-garde art of the early 20th century to the present. Stunning, high-quality photographs of major artworks accompany illuminating discussions of the masters of modern and contemporary painting, sculpture, architecture, and conceptual art. Here are giants of invention such as Picasso and Matisse, the German expressionists, Dadaists, constructivists, surrealists, abstract expressionists, minimalists, pop artists, and today's cutting-edge creators. They're all carefully placed in cultural context, with ideas, movements, events, artists, and works beautifully examined. Scholars, art aficionados, students, gallery owners, and art historians will all find this mainstream, accessible guide appealing.
