Product Description

A century and a half of masterpieces is covered in this chronologically arranged volume that beautifully captures the development of art in a new age.
Starting with James Abbott McNeill Whistler and ending with Matthew Barney, nearly every prominent figure in Modern art is represented in vibrant double-page spreads that show how these artists continued to redefine norms and challenge tradition. Fascinating biographical and anecdotal information about each artist is provided alongside large reproductions of their most celebrated works, stunning details, and images of the artists themselves. A color-coded timeline spans the entire volume, showing overlapping careers and important historical dates. From the impressionists to the surrealists, the cubists to the pop-artists-readers will find a wealth of information as well as hours of enjoyment learning about this popular and prolific period in art history.

5love it!
By K. Eadington
I'm an art teacher and I love this series! It has great pictures and great little blurbs about the artist or artwork. I use them to make warm ups for the kids. If you're looking for something that goes in depth on stuff this isn't for you, but if you want a short refresher or just like brief and interesting descriptions then it's great.
