Overview

In his fourth and final book in an acclaimed series on contemporary art, Irving Sandler, a leading authority on the subject, critiques the art and artists of the last 25 years.

In this finely illustrated, major history of American and European art of the past quarter century, Irving Sandler shows how new directions in art emerged in the 1960s--Post Minimal styles, Pattern and Decoration Painting, and New Image Painting--through the 1980s--Neo-Expressionism, Media Deconstruction, and Commodity Art. Sandler discusses the major and minor artists and their works, movements, ideas, attitudes, and styles, and places them in the social and cultural context of the period. He also covers Postmodernist art theory, the art market, and consumer society.

Fully documented and clearly written, Sandler's book is essential for understanding the art of this period.
