Art: The Twentieth Century by Flaminio Gualdoni


Art: The Twentieth Century by Flaminio Gualdoni

This lavishly illustrated and super-condensed history of the major movements of twentieth century art provides an accessible entry into contemporary art for everyone. This book on the art of the twentieth century is published almost ten years after the end of the so-called short century which in terms of art was anything but short and is a valuable tool for reflection, taking stock, and summing up. The author has placed a series of works in sequence, accompanied by easy to understand critical commentary. Presented in this title are some of the most famous artists of the 20th-century from Arp to Brancusi, Bacon to Basquiat, Gris to Koons, Gaudi to Schnabel, Warhol to Grant Wood and their greatest master works never before have they been so accessible as they are in this format.
