‘A landmark study of the history of art … [an] amazing, monumental, authoritative and definitive work’’ – Mature Times
‘The truth is that this is a lot more than a book. In fact, think of it as a season ticket to all the world’s galleries, Google, and the far corners of the internet rolled into one … This is an extraordinary book, extraordinarily well managed’ – Art Book Review
An updated edition of the most comprehensive critical history of 20th- and 21st-century art on the market today. Art Since 1900 is essential reading for anyone seeking to understand the complexities of art in the modern age
Groundbreaking in both its content and its presentation, Art Since 1900 has been hailed as a landmark study in the history of art. Conceived by some of the most influential art historians of our time, this extraordinary book has now been revised, expanded and brought right up to date to include the latest developments in the study and practice of art.
Within a clear, chronological framework, Art Since 1900 presents 130 articles, each focusing on a crucial event – such as the creation of a seminal work, the publication of an important text, or the opening of a major exhibition – to tell the myriad stories of art from 1900 to the present.
This third edition includes a new introduction on the impact of globalization, as well as essays on the development of Synthetic Cubism, early avant-garde film, Brazilian modernism, postmodern architecture, Moscow conceptualism, queer art, South African photography, and the rise of the new museum of art.
