"The third edition of Modern Art, now revised and expanded, narrates one of the great stories of our time - how European and American vanguard culture created modernist art by heeding the call "to make it new." Modern Art captures the sense of intellectual and aesthetic ferment through the close integration of its authoritative text and nearly nine hundred well-chosen illustrations. Right up through the present day, coverage ranges across a broad spectrum of visual arts, from painting, sculpture, and photography to conceptual forms, installation and video art, and architecture."--BOOK JACKET.
John Jacobus is Professor of Art and Urban Studies at Dartmouth College.
