Overview

The third edition of Modern Art, now revised and expanded, narrates one of the great stories of our time - how European and American vanguard culture created modernist art by heeding the call "to make it new." Modern Art captures the sense of intellectual and aesthetic ferment through the close integration of its authoritative text and nearly nine hundred well-chosen illustrations. Right up through the present day, coverage ranges across a broad spectrum of visual arts, from painting, sculpture, and photography to conceptual forms, installation and video art, and architecture.

    Complete, enlightening but difficult to follow in spots

    Fairly complete, enlightening, much wonderful artwork but the writing is sometimes extremely hard to follow and, in a few spots, is unintelligible. I know it's difficult to encompass so many movements and artists in a single volume, but I find the organizational scheme here confusing. I love art but do not look forward to reading assignments from this book, which is the main text for my Modern Art history course.
