Learning to Look at Modern Art by Mary Acton

Book Description

This companion volume to the author's Learning to Look at Paintings suggests that the best way to understand modern art is to look closely at it, and to consider the different elements that make up each art work: composition, space and form, light and colour, and subject matter. Engaging and beautifully-written, this guide to art of the modern and postmodern period covers key art movements including: * Expressionism * Constructivism * the Bauhaus * Surrealism * Pop Art * Conceptual Art * Young British Art * artistic forms such as architecture and design, sculpture and installation as well as works on canvas. The book is richly illustrated with colour and black and white images by the artists, designers and architects discussed, ranging from Picasso and Matisse to Le Corbusier, Andy Warhol and Rachel Whiteread.
