Description - The Story of Modern Art by Norbert Lynton
This updated edition, which includes a new chapter about art in the 1980s, explores artwork of the 20th century, from 1900 to the present day. The text examines the motives behind the main developments, and argues that they are serious and intelligent attempts to make art honest and significant. The author aims to help the reader form a relaxed and sympathetic relationship to art, while providing information and biographical details about some 200 artists. The illustrations, taken from many sources, are fully integrated with the text in order to provide easy reference and consultation. Norbert Lynton worked for some years as Director of Exhibitions for the Arts Council of Great Britain.
