Modern Art. A History from Impressionism to Today


Modern Matters

A blow-by-blow account of modern art movements

Most art historians agree that the modern art adventure first developed in the 1860s in Paris. A circle of painters, whom we now know as Impressionists, began painting pictures with rapid, loose brushwork. They turned to everyday street life for subjects, instead of overblown heroic scenes, and they escaped the power of the Salon by organizing their own independent exhibitions.

After this first assault on the artistic establishment, there was no holding back. In a constant desire to challenge, innovate, and inspire, one modernist style supplanted the next: Symbolism, Expressionism, Futurism, Dada, abstract art, renewed Realism, Surrealism, Abstract Expressionism, Pop, Minimal and conceptual practice.

This indispensable overview traces the restless energy of modern art with a year-by-year succession of the groundbreaking artworks that shook standards and broke down barriers. Introductory essays outline the most significant and influential movements alongside explanatory texts for each major work and its artist.

The perfect memory-refreshing modern art book

Gleris,27 ottobre 2021
It has been so long after the sought-after history classes at school that I remember with such nostalgy, but love for art and how it shapes out world (and vice-versa) still has remained intact. This book is the perfect summary about modern art movements and the artists who shaped them, but it's still quite detail oriented, making it a unique book, considering also the low, competitive price. Taschen is always a garancy.
