Item description for A History of 20th-Century Art by Bernard Blistene...

Here is a fresh, exhilarating approach to the history of twentieth-century art. Rejecting the year-by-year sequential approach of conventional accounts, author Bernard Blistène tackles the subject thematically, using key works as a springboard to understanding the ideas and techniques of the major artists of the century.

The book encompasses the visual arts in the broadest sense of the term. In addition to painting, sculpture and the new art forms of the postwar era, it covers architecture, photography, industrial design and video. Each chapter treats a different theme-- from Fauvism to film, Dada to design-- providing:

* a general overview of the movement or period in question
* numerous illustrations of particular works, each accompanied by brief explanatory texts
* chronologies detailing important events within and around the world of art
* bibliographies and suggested museum visits for each movement.

With over 500 illustrations, A History of 20th-Century Art provides a lucid and compelling introduction to artistic creation in the last century.

Reviews - What do customers think about A History of 20th-Century Art?

A very disappointing art book  Jul 6, 2007
I was very disappointed in this book. The style is unique (see the publisher's review above) yet this makes it somewhat incoherent. Also, the majority of the text is printed with a small font underneath the art pictures. The very narrow columns used for this contribute to its nearly illegible layout. I think the disappointment is that Bernard Blistene has an impressive resume yet the book doesn't reflect this.
