'A useful and mercifully jargon-free introduction to a very complex subject' Richard Cork


In a series of essays by some of the most internationally acclaimed writers on art, the extraordinary artistic challenges of the twentieth century are introduced and discussed with unparalleled lucidity, intelligence and factual accuracy. No other book on modern and contemporary art presents in as concise and authoritative a manner the ideas that underlie the diverse and radical developments of the last hundred years.


'A key book for anyone interested in twentieth-century art'
Lynne Cooke

'Energetic, enthusiastic and filled with facts. The authors show their interest in the subjects and are willing to interpret them, writing simply and accessibly…a splendid vade mecum'
Marina Vaizey
