Overview

This standard work on the arts since World War II has been substantially revised, expanded and redesigned. Eight new chapters and a new Introduction cover and illustrate all the most recent international trends and artists, including art in the USA from the 1970s; Neo-Expressionist tendencies; Post-Pop Blues; art based on feminist and gay issues; the new media of video and photography; and new Classicism in Russia, Italy and China. The book is as global in its reach as art has become in modern times, and also considers work from Latin America, Korea, India, Africa, China and Japan. No other account offers as much up-to-date information about artists, issues and developments.
