This superb, clearly organized guide to art from 1860 to the present is without peer -- it is the key to understanding more than a century of dynamic change, from Impressionism to the Digital Age. The 300 schools and movements discussed provide an introduction to the major developments in Western painting, sculpture, architecture, and design during one of the most exciting periods in art history.

Who, where, when, how, and why? -- these are the essential questions answered in the 100 main entries that make up the heart of the book. A foldout illustrated time line shows at a glance how modern and contemporary art evolved. Whether for reference, fresh exploration, or pure pleasure, this authoritative, unusually accessible book is a supremely valuable resource for anyone interested in art.
