50 Art Movements You Should Know: From Impressionism to Performance Art

Available

Description

The story of modern art begins with a revolution-when the realists started rejecting romanticism in favor of depicting life as it really was. Since that movement began in the mid-19th- century, painters have been rebelling, rethinking, deconstructing, and challenging notions of what art is. Filled with stunning reproductions of some of the world's greatest masterpieces, this reference book offers a chronological journey through artistic revolutions. Each movement is presented in a series of informative presentations-a concise definition and description; full-page and smaller detailed color illustrations; and in-depth profiles of the artists crucial to the style's development. Covering a wide range of movements both familiar and obscure, this accessible and informative volume is a perfect introduction for readers interested in art's constantly evolving story.
