Movements in Art Since 1945 (World of Art)

Edward Lucie-Smith


'Wide-ranging, dispassionate, omnicompetent' The Sunday Times


This standard work on the arts since World War II has been substantially revised, expanded and redesigned. Eight new chapters and a new introduction cover and illustrate all the most recent international trends and artists: art in the USA from the 1970s; Neo-Expressionist tendencies; Post-Pop Blues; art based on feminist and gay issues; the new media of video and photography; and new Classicism in Russia, Italy and China. The book is as global in its reach as art has become in modern times, and includes the art of Latin America, Korea, India, Africa, China and Japan.
