Authoritative and insightful, Arnason's History of Modern Art remains the definitive source of information on the art of the Modern Era from modernism's mid-nineteenth century European beginnings to today's divergent art trends. Now full-color throughout, this Fifth Edition has been completely redesigned to make it even more elegant and easy-to-use. New heads, subheads, and a glossary have been added to help the reader navigate the material and quickly identify areas of interest.
H. H. Arnason was Vice President for Art Administration of the Solomon Guggenheim Museum in New York. From 1947 to 1961, he was Professor and Chairman of the Department of Art at the University of Minnesota.
