Containing 114 reproductions of works ranging from Jackson Pollock's dynamic 1948 drip painting to Kehinde Wiley's 2006 hip-hop-meets-Old-Master portrait, ""Modern and Contemporary Art at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts"" is a handsome collection that offers art enthusiasts a chance to recall old favorites and discover hidden treasures and new acquisitions. Taken from the nationally recognized collection of the same name at the VMFA, the works presented here appear chronologically within the book's three sections - paintings; sculpture and video art; and prints, drawings, photographs, and collage. The result is an intriguing compilation of postwar art not to be missed.
