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.
