20th Century Art Book by Editors of Phaidon Press

Book Description

Now available in a new convenient format, this book is an accessible guide to the art of the twentieth century. A complement to the landmark The Art Book it showcases 500 artists in alphabetical order, placing early stars like Monet, Picasso and Dali alongside the most innovative contemporary artists and documenting the myriad new media used by artists, from oil to sculpture, from ready-mades to installation. Each artist is represented by a full-page colour plate and a biographical text which makes it suitable for casual browsing or research, as well as being a visually stimulating journey through the 100 years of art. The easy to use cross-referencing system reveals the connections between artists and the glossary defines terms and artistic movements in jargon-free language that is suitable for readers approaching contemporary art for the first time, as well as offering insights to the enthusiast or student. The 'midi' format is the perfect companion to the original hardback edition and mini paperback format, offering all the visual impact of the original and the affordability and portability of the mini format.
